A Message from 49ers Foundation Co-Chairman, Dr. John York

Dear Faithful,

For over 30 years, 49ers Faithful have channeled their passion for the 49ers to strengthen and support our kids and communities and scale our impact year over year. Through triumphs, defeats, and Super Bowl rings, you’ve helped us remain faithful to our mission: to harness the power of football to educate and empower Bay Area Youth through innovative and community-focused strategies that advance academic learning, health and wellness, and critical life skills, with an emphasis on underserved youth. Our work is based on seeing every young person as a whole person, each with his or her own priceless potential.

As we start a new season of football, we know your unwavering support on and off the field will help us continue to make strides towards our collective goal – improving the lives of the next generation and remaining faithful to our shared future.
