Fans have the opportunity to win game-worn jerseys off the backs of a Padres player or coach. Proceeds benefit Padres Foundation youth baseball programs. This will be the 22nd year the San Diego Padres have provided the "Shirts Off Their Backs" opportunity for fans. Over the years, Padres' fan support has raised more than $600,000 for Padres Foundation programs and initiatives supporting children's recreation, health and education.
The San Diego Padres Foundation is dedicated to improving lives throughout the greater San Diego and Baja community by working hand-in-hand with organizations that share our vision. The Foundation makes a positive impact in the region’s overall quality of life by prioritizing health, education and fitness, particularly for those in underserved communities. Through its considerable contributions of financial resources, game tickets, memorabilia and promotion, the Padres Foundation elevates the impact of valuable community organizations such as:
