UMPS CARE Charities, founded through the compassion of Major League Baseball umpires, provides financial, in-kind and emotional support to America’s youth and families in need. Through our youth-based programs, professional umpires enrich the lives of at-risk youth, children coping with serious illness and military families by providing memorable, once-in-a-lifetime, baseball experiences.

Umpires make baseball magic on baseball fields across the country and give children reason to cheer by bringing Build-A-Bear Workshop experiences to them while they are undergoing rigorous medical treatment at hospitals. Through our scholarship initiative, we offer financial support to children adopted later in life. Visit our website to learn more.
