Application Open for the 16th Season of Home Runs for Heroes

January 9, 2024

We’re teaming up with the Jersey Shore BlueClaws  to continue our proud tradition of honoring and providing support to the brave men and women who serve and protect our nation. In the fifteen years of the Home Runs for Heroes program, $628,000 has been awarded to support our heroes. A big WIN!

Here’s how it works. Charity partners apply for inclusion prior to the start of each season. A maximum of 18 charity partners (2 per inning) will be selected based on the level and type of services they provide. Chosen charities are assigned an inning for the season before the first home game. Every home run hit by the Jersey Shore BlueClaws in the charity’s assigned inning (home games only) scores a $1,000 donation from OceanFirst Foundation.

Don’t miss this once a year opportunity to have your nonprofit considered for the charity team!
