The Giants Community Fund works with W2O, a SF-based network of analytics-driven, digital-first marketing and communications firms, to broaden outreach to recruit and retain more volunteers, participants and donors. W2O employs traditional media relations tactics in addition to earned and social media, content strategy, and analytics insights, to expand the reach of the Fund. The Fund also works with W2O to grow community engagement with hard-to-reach audiences residing in areas served by the 90 Junior Giants leagues spanning California, Nevada and Oregon by showcasing the positive impact of its programs.
The Giants Community Fund is proud to partner with businesses, foundations and nonprofit organizations to bring our programs to life and to leverage resources to raise money. We are grateful for the efforts and energy of these all-star partners:
Good Tidings Foundation, founded in 1995, is a 501-(c)-3 children's charity that looks to equally support ARTS, EDUCATION, ATHLETICS and DREAMS for youth from communities of need in Northern California. Good Tidings creates original projects and works in partnership with professional sports franchises, businesses and agencies throughout the region, leveraging resources in order to increase access to enriching opportunities by deserving youth.
Wender Weis Foundation for Children annually presents Holiday Heroes, an evening of holiday joy and fun for San Francisco Bay Area families and children in need. Holiday Heroes is celebrating its sixth year.
Holiday Heroes attendees enjoy rare access to the SF Giants' dugout and batting tunnels, ballpark fare and beverages, plus activities such as holiday cookie decorating, teddy bear stuffing, face painting, photo/video booths, and a silent auction. Children and families will have the exclusive opportunity to meet local sports athletes while celebrating the holiday season.
Masons4Mitts is a program of the Masons of California that works with Major League Baseball teams and their charitable foundations to help underserved youth in California. Each baseball season, the Masons of California team up with the San Francisco Giants, Los Angeles Dodgers, and the San Diego Padres to bring the fun of baseball to more kids. Lodges in each region face off in friendly competition to help the most kids they can. The team from each region that funds the greatest number of baseball mitts will present their check, along with the grand master, on Masons Night at each ballpark.
Over the past seven years, the Masons of California have provided over $500,000 to these programs. Please learn more about the Masons of California on freemason.org.
Norman S. Wright Company would have been over in its first year if San Francisco's legendary 1906 earthquake and fires had had the final say.
But founder Norman Scott Wright, son of Scottish immigrants and a born optimist, wasn't going to let the disaster, and his resulting financial ruin, get him down. He re-built the fledgling business-focused primarily on equipment for the offshore marine industry-and until his death in 1947, guided it to become the most trusted and enduring distributor of commercial heating, air conditioning and ventilation equipment (HVAC) in the country.
Our president, Rich Leao, explains that the ingredients of our success are clear: "great people, hard work and a tireless commitment to getting it right for our customers."
"Now," he adds, "our goal is to keep it up, so we can earn their business for another 100 years."
