About the Cardinals Fly Together Fund:

The Cardinals Fly Together Fund is designed to spearhead the Springfield Cardinals community support initiatives through various programs that will be available to 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations, schools, churches and communities throughout southwest Missouri.

The flagship opportunity through the Cardinals Fly Together Fund is designed to provide matching grants to area schools to give students the opportunity to attend a Springfield Cardinals home game. Educational Day Game Field Trips are an excellent opportunity to incorporate learning through various pre-game educational topics with the experience of attending a live sporting event. Schools can find more details and apply for a matching grant at cfozarks.org/flytogether. The second round of grant applications are due by Wednesday, March 20.

Other initiatives will be announced throughout the year. For anyone or any organizations interested in supporting the Fly Together Fund and help extend additional grant opportunities, secure online donations can be made at cfozarks.org/cardinals.
