The Arizona Diamondbacks, MLB Commissioner's Office and Players Give Back have partnered to design the Commissioner's Community Initiative to help those who would not normally be able to attend a game. The complimentary Commissioner's Community Initiative ticket donation program is designed to support non-profit and tax exempt organizations that assist underprivileged and underserved members of our community with complimentary group tickets to select Arizona Diamondbacks home games.
In 2012, the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation partnered with the University of Phoenix to launch the D-backs School Challenge, a statewide grant program that challenged public, private and charter schools to "make their best pitch" for a $5,000 grant. The charitable grants have helped schools from across the state with innovative programs such as vocational activities for special education students, digital sculpting for animation art classes, community gardens, after school fitness classes and much more. Through the School Challenge program, the D-backs have provided more than 120 schools with grants for an overall monetary commitment of more than $600,000 since the program launched in 2012.
