49ers Foundation Announces 30th Anniversary Celebration
The San Francisco 49ers announced a major milestone on Monday, May 10th for the organization, as the 49ers Foundation begins a 30th Anniversary celebration, highlighted by hitting $50 million raised and invested back into underserved Bay Area communities. Through its direct service programs, 49ers EDU presented by Chevron and 49ers PREP presented by U.S. Bank, legacy beneficiaries and support from the Faithful, the 49ers Foundation has helped to level the playing field for more than 500,000 youth in the Bay Area and beyond.
This anniversary also falls perfectly in line with the team's 75th Anniversary campaign, launched just prior to the 2021 NFL Draft. The Foundation plans to use this season to reflect on all the amazing work accomplished so far, but also to forge a clear path for another 30 years of giving back to The Bay and beyond.
"Over these 30 years, the 49ers Foundation has grown and been supported by our sponsors, local businesses, and our passionate fans. The Foundation has provided a means to meet and reach our organization, players, alumni and coaches, all while joining us together to serve our community," said 49ers Co-Chairman Dr. John York. "During this celebratory 30th Anniversary year, we look forward to sharing in-person events as soon as possible."
We are appreciative of our 49ers and 49ers Foundation Faithful that have been with us since the beginning. We look forward to the future milestone celebrations, continuing our work to educate and empower youth, and remaining faithful to the next generation!
