About Respect 90®
The mission of the Respect 90® Foundation is to enrich the lives of at-risk children and families in all of the places Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon and his wife, Jaye, call home: Chicago, Tampa-St. Petersburg, Mesa and Joe’s hometown, Hazleton, PA. Among the many beneficiaries of the Respect 90® Foundation's efforts:
- The Cardon Children’s Medical Center in Mesa
- Chicago inner-city youth boxing clubs, the Misericordia Home, Catholic Charities and various shelters for homeless and disabled persons
- The creation of the Hazleton Integration Project and support of the Hazleton Arts Resource Center
- In Tampa-St. Petersburg, emotional and financial support for the Miracle League of the Gulf Beaches, The Children’s Cancer Center and numerous homeless shelters and youth projects
In 2017, the Respect 90®Foundation provided assistance to nearly 50 non-profits, including contributions of more than $70,000 to storm relief in Puerto Rico, Tampa and Houston.
