Rebekah Splaine Salwasser joined the Red Sox Foundation club in January of 2018 as the Executive Director of the Red Sox Foundation.
Prior to joining the Boston Red Sox, Salwasser was the Executive Director for Scholar Athletes, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to support academic achievement through athletics. Founded in 2009 by Suffolk Construction’s CEO, John Fish, the organization aims to reduce the opportunity gap for Public High School students by utilizing private sector assets to benefit the public sector. It further leverages the power of sport to motivate and facilitate young people to perform better in school. By doing this, SA has the unique opportunity to make a significant impact on scholar-athlete’s social-emotional development, in addition to their academic success.
