The Giants Community Fund, the 501(c)(3) nonprofit of the San Francisco Giants, uses baseball and softball to promote health, education and character development to propel youth in underserved regions to be positive forces in their communities. Since its inception in 1991, the Fund has donated over $40 million to community efforts and has served over 400,000 youth.
The San Francisco Giants are dedicated to enriching our community through innovation and excellence on and off the field.
The Giants' work in the community translates into a variety of unique and progressive programs dedicated to addressing some of the most pressing needs of Northern California children and their families, including health, violence prevention, youth fitness and recreation, education and literacy & more.
Junior Giants, the flagship program of the Giants Community Fund, is a free, noncompetitive, coed baseball and softball program for youth ages 5-18. Serving over 30,000 youth annually, Junior Giants uses the power of the game to introduce important lessons in character development, health, education and bullying prevention. Over 80 leagues and 70 schools in underserved communities across California, Oregon and Nevada host the program each year.
