Hoops for Kids Program Raises $543,500 for Bay Area Youth

The Warriors Community Foundation, in partnership with Taube Philanthropies, the Koret Foundation, and Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), Has so far raised $543,500 for eight organizations via the Hoops for Kids program this season.

Through the Hoops for Kids program, each Warriors three-pointer during the regular season yields $500 for eight organizations working locally to improve opportunities and outcomes for youth. The Warriors have connected on 1087 three-pointers in 2018-19 to mark the fifth consecutive season that the team has hit at least 800 threes, raising critical funds for local youth development and education. 

Before the April 5 game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Warriors Community Foundation hosted a reception for Hoops for Kids presenting sponsors and beneficiaries. In addition, the program was recognized on-court with a check presentation.

This year’s Hoops for Kids program supports the following organizations:

  • Boys & Girls Clubs of Oakland – provides safe places to learn and grow, life-enhancing programs, hope and opportunity
  • Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco – inspires and enables young people to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens
  • East Oakland Youth Development Center – develops social and leadership capacities in youth to excel in education, career and service to their communities
  • Playworks – provides play and physical activity at low-income schools, helping children connect with other kids and grow physically, emotionally and socially
  • Safe Passages disrupts the cycle of poverty by engaging youth and families to build and drive a continuum of services that supports student success and community development
  • Education Outside advances science education and environmental literacy—regardless of race, class, or geography—by teaching outdoors in public schools; we spark children's interest in science and connect them to the natural world through hands-on learning in school gardens
  • The Oakland Public Education Fund partners with the wider community to give Oakland public schools the funds, tools, and volunteers they need so all students can thrive
  • Techbridge Girls excites, educates, and equips girls from low-income communities to achieve economic mobility and better life chances through STEM
