The Atlanta Braves established The Henry Louis Aaron Fund, under the banner of the Atlanta Braves Foundation, after Henry's passing on January 22, 2021.
The fund was created to continue to support Henry Aaron’s life-long passion to increase minority participation in baseball on the field, in baseball’s business operations, in careers at minor and major league level, and in the front offices of Clubs across Major League Baseball.
April 8 - 715 Day
On April 8, 1974, Hank Aaron broke Babe Ruth's home run record at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium. Every year on that date, the Atlanta Braves celebrate this historic moment, but this year - it's different. This year is not only about celebrating but also about continuing the legacy of Henry Louis Aaron. A donation to the Henry Louis Aaron Fund can ensure that his legacy lives on.
