MILWAUKEE — In a season unlike any other, the Milwaukee Brewers and their corporate partners will continue to turn hits, outs, and double plays into money for numerous nonprofit organizations.

The club listed the 2020 charitable lineup in a press release.

This year's programs include:

Associated Bank Hits for Hunger – For every hit by a Brewers player during the 2020 season, Associated Bank and Brewers Community Foundation will team up to make a $150 donation to Feeding America to fight hunger.

Gruber Law Offices Outs for Hope – With every out recorded by the Brewers bullpen at Miller Park, Gruber Law Offices will make a donation to the MACC Fund in support of research to end childhood cancer and related blood disorders.

Monkey Knife Fight Home Runs for BCF – For every home run at Miller Park in the 2020 season that hits one of the monkeys in the right-field bleachers by either the Brewers or a visiting team, Monkey Knife Fight, the official daily fantasy site of the Brewers, will make a $10,000 donation to Brewers Community Foundation.

ORBIS Double Plays – ORBIS will donate $150 to Brewers Community Foundation for every double play turned by the Crew at Miller Park.

Palermo’s Pizza® Scoring First for Families – Each regular-season home game when the Brewers earn a run before the visiting team, Palermo’s® will donate 1,000 frozen pizzas to Hunger Task Force.

Players for the Planet Save the Ocean supported by SC Johnson, Brent Suter, Corey Knebel, and the Milwaukee Brewers – For every save recorded by the Brewers this season, SC Johnson, Brent Suter, Corey Knebel, and the Brewers will team up to donate $1,000 to the Players for the Planet Save the Ocean program.

Donations from the program will allow Players for the Planet to host 12 beach clean-ups with local MLB youth development programs in the Dominican Republic, once public health conditions allow. These clean-ups will result in the collection and recycling of 3,000 pounds of ocean-bound plastic, all while engaging 1,500 youth with ocean conservation education programming.

Sargento Double Helping for Hunger – Sargento will donate $200 to Hunger Task Force for every double hit by the Brewers during the 2020 season. Since the program began in 2018, Sargento has donated more than $70,000 to feed families in need.

We Energies Ks for a Cause – We Energies Foundation will donate $25 to Journey House for every strikeout recorded by a Brewers pitcher at Miller Park this season.

Brewers Community Foundation (BCF) – In addition to the many season-long charitable programs, a number of Brewers' corporate partners are also significant financial supporters of Brewers Community Foundation as members of the BCF Leadership Council. This list includes Aurora Health Care, Delta Dental, Johnson Controls, MillerCoors, Northwestern Mutual, We Energies and West Bend Mutual Insurance Company.

Over the past ten years, BCF has generated more than $42 million to support local nonprofits in the areas of health, education, recreation, and basic needs. In 2019, approximately 200 nonprofit organizations received funding through the Foundation’s initiatives.
