Each year, the Atlanta Braves Foundation grants funds to youth-serving organizations that focus on health, education, and recreation; and whose plans for the requested funds will have a significant impact upon the individuals served by the requesting organization.
Through Braves Give, our community outreach platform, the Atlanta Braves Foundation awarded more than $250,000 to local non-profit organizations in 2012. The grants presentation capped another successful year for the Atlanta Braves Foundation and its community outreach programs.
The Foundation was successful in its fundraising efforts thanks to the generous support of thousands of fans and community partners. Marquee events and initiatives including the 50/50 Raffle and Atlanta Braves Foundation Weekend experienced tremendous support and success. Annual fundraisers and ongoing programs including the Atlanta Braves Foundation Golf Classic and game day silent auctions helped provide additional funds to support the Atlanta Braves Foundation's outreach efforts.
The Atlanta Braves Foundation believes that serving others is a true team effort, and through the combined efforts of our players, employees, corporate partners and fans, we can truly make a meaningful difference.
