FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif., April 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Following Major League Baseball's season openers, loanDepot, the nation's second largest nonbank retail lender, racked up $29,500 for Boys & Girls Clubs of America through the launch of its "Home Means Everything" RBI campaign. In the second year of its campaign, loanDepot will donate $25 for every run batted in (RBI) during the 2022 MLB regular season. The company elevated the amount to $250 per RBI for the first two days of the season, which tallied 118.
loanDepot is the Official Mortgage Provider of MLB and Presenting Sponsor of the American League Championship Series (ALCS) and National League Championship Series (NLCS).
"We're starting our second season as an MLB partner off strong with this donation to Boys & Girls Clubs," said loanDepot EVP, Chief Administrative Officer TJ Freeborn. "Making a real difference in the communities where Team loanDepot lives and works is in our DNA. We see the numbers from Opening Day as a great sign of things to come and look forward to putting more points on the board for youth and families across America."
Last year, 20,993 RBIs brought in more than $550,000 during the regular season and a special ALCS and NLCS bonus of $1,000 per RBI brought the year-long total to $665,000. An expected increase in RBIs this season could see more than $650,000 donated in the regular season alone, with more for planned bonuses during the Postseason.
