The Jackie Robinson Foundation is a national, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which gives scholarships to minority youths for higher education, as well as preserving the legacy of Baseball Hall of Fame member, Jackie Robinson. The foundation was founded by Rachel Robinson, the wife of Jackie, in 1973, a couple of months after his death. The foundation provides four-year college scholarships in conjunction with a comprehensive set of skills and opportunities to disadvantaged students of color to ensure their success in college and to develop their leadership potential. Its hands-on, four-year program includes peer and professional mentoring, internship placement, extensive leadership training, international travel and community service options, the conveyance of practical life skills, and a myriad networking opportunities. The Foundation's strategic combination of financial assistance and support services results consistently in a nearly 100% college graduation rate. Since its founding, over 1,450 scholars have received scholarships. Support for the foundation comes from various sponsors. Among its supporters are Major League Baseball, the Los Angeles Dodgers, General Electric, Goldman Sachs, and Nike, Inc.

On April 27, 2017, the Jackie Robinson Foundation held a groundbreaking ceremony for the Jackie Robinson Museum, at 75 Varick Street, in lower Manhattan, New York City, US.[2][3][4] The foundation hopes to open the 18,500-square-foot (1,720 m2) museum in spring 2019.[2] In addition to being a permanent tribute to Jackie Robinson's pioneering legacy and role as a catalyst for the Civil Rights Movement, the museum will serve as a venue for dialogue on critical social issues and as a destination for innovative educational programming. The Museum will commemorate the life and legacy of Jackie Robinson through an exploration of his commitment to service and to the achievement of "first class citizenship" for all Americans. It is envisioned as a prominent stop on existing cultural routes in New York City and environs, and as a venue for lectures, concerts and receptions.


The foundation presents the ROBIE award, a tribute to an individual who has promoted and expanded opportunities for minorities in the corporate world. The 2016 awardees were Pittsburgh Steelers chairman Dan Rooney, founder of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics Bobbi Brown, and Vista Equity Partners chairman and CEO Robert F. Smith. Previous honorees have included Mariano Rivera, Bruce Ratner, Thomas Tull, Henry Louis Gates, Tyler Perry, Paul Tagliabue, Sean Combs, Rita Moreno, Robert Redford, George Lucas, Robin Roberts, John D. Finnegan, Joe J. Plumeri, Hillary Clinton, John Thain, Michael Jordan, Ella Fitzgerald, Arthur Ashe, Pete Rozelle, Clive Davis, Magic Johnson, Dick Gregory and Desmond Tutu.[5]
