The Seattle Mariners believe that all young athletes should have access to the games of baseball and softball, regardless of the barriers they may face. Learn more about how the On BASE initiative works in our communities to increase sport equity across the Pacific Northwest.
The entire Seattle Mariners organization takes the role of community leadership very seriously. The ballclub is in a unique position to connect the team with worthwhile endeavors, community partners and fundraising activities that make significant contributions to the Pacific Northwest. It is the goal and responsibility of the organization to be a community leader. During the 2019 Mariners season, Mariners Care, the team's non-profit foundation, helped raise nearly $1.5 million dollars for various charities and community projects.
In 2019, the Mariners made a substantial commitment to our community’s response to the homelessness crisis. Through a $3 million founding grant, the Mariners helped establish Home Base, an eviction prevention program in partnership with United Way of King County and King County Bar Association. During its first six months, Home Base provided legal assistance to 1,069 households and financial assistance to help 405 households avoid eviction. The goal is for Home Base to help prevent up to 4,000 evictions each year, the leading cause of homelessness.
The Mariners believe the mental, physical, and emotional health of our neighbors is vital to maintaining a thriving community.
We’re committed to supporting students and teachers across the Northwest to help our school districts prosper and thrive.
Since the foundation’s inception in 1991, Mariners Care has raised over $28 million to strengthen our communities.
The Mariners Wives are dedicated to making an impact in the Seattle community by working with a variety of youth-oriented organizations.
