RBI is a main beneficiary of Cleveland Indians Charities, which is in its 25th year. Since 1989, CIC has donated nearly $9 million to youth-oriented agencies and organizations of Northeast Ohio. Additionally, high school baseball and softball in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District are alive only because of the multi-million-dollar commitment made by the Indians organization.
