The Giants Community Fund, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, collaborates with the San Francisco Giants by using baseball as a forum to encourage underserved youth and their families to live healthy, productive lives. The Fund supports Junior Giants leagues throughout Northern California, Nevada and Oregon and provides assistance to targeted community initiatives in the areas of Education, Health and Violence Prevention.
Since its inception in 1991, the Fund has donated over $26 million to community efforts. The Fund is managed by a 30-member Board of Directors, and is sustained by contributions from individuals, businesses and foundations through a number of special partnerships and fundraisers.
The San Francisco Giants were named the 2016 Sports Humanitarian Team of the Year by ESPN for the organization's community outreach efforts, including the Giants Community Fund's Junior Giants program. The Fund is also honored that the Junior Giants program was chosen as the 2015 recipient of the Commissioner's Award for Philanthropic Excellence. The award was created in 2010 to recognize the charitable and philanthropic efforts of MLB Clubs.
