Chevron is the first founding partner of the Oakland A's Community Fund, the team announced Thursday. As a founding partner, Chevron will play an integral role in the A's educational community efforts, providing the Oakland A's Community Fund with more support and resources to extend its reach in Oakland and the East Bay.

As part of the three-year partnership with the Oakland A's Community Fund, Chevron will also be the presenting partner of the A's science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) initiatives, including Science of Baseball, a 15-lesson curriculum that will provide 40 teachers in its pilot season with training, materials, and programming to implement in their own classrooms.

The Oakland A's Community Fund takes an innovative and dynamic approach to support education, promote youth sports, and provide economic opportunity in order to help make Oakland and the East Bay a more equitable and inclusive community.

"We thank Chevron for their continued support of the Oakland A's Community Fund," said A's COO Chris Giles. "Chevron has consistently been a proud and active member of the communities they serve, and we are happy to join forces with them to make an even greater impact in Oakland and the East Bay."

"Inspiring young people about STEM through baseball is a great way to teach teamwork, creativity, and problem solving for real-life issues," said Rhonda Morris, Vice President of Human Resources at Chevron. "Our hope is that students think about how STEM can create a better future for themselves and do great things that benefit us all. We couldn't be prouder to partner with the Oakland A's to help bring this to life."
