Golden State Warriors Select Oakland Public Education Fund as Hoops for Kids Beneficiary


 
If you’re anything like us, you’ve got plenty of reasons to cheer for the Warriors, but here’s one more anyway: through their Hoops for Kids program, each Warriors three-point basket this regular season means $500 for eight Bay Area nonprofits that work to create great outcomes for kids, including the Oakland Public Education Fund!
 
Thanks to PG&E, the Koret Foundation and Taube Philanthropies, our team’s success is now our community’s success. We’re honored to be included alongside Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco and Oakland, East Oakland Youth Development Center, Playworks, Safe Passages, Education Outside, and Techbridge Girls.
 
On top of that per-basket donation, at the February 23 game against the Houston Rockets, the Warriors also held a special 50/50 raffle that split the pot between us and a lucky fan. It was the highest-grossing raffle yet of the season (nearly $17K!), and the funds will help us continue growing programs like our A to Z Fund mini-grants for educators.
 
Thank you, Golden State Warriors, for being true champions of the community!
