Marlins Foundation accepting applications


The Marlins Foundation is requesting proposals for the 2013 Charity Partner Empowerment Fund. To be considered as a 2013 Marlins Charity Partner, organizations must provide direct and unique programming for youth through educational, arts and baseball related programming, more specifically by providing unique experiences for kids in schools, parks and on the water.

“During the Inaugural Year at Marlins Park, the Marlins Foundation invested over $1.2 MM in philanthropy in South Florida.  In addition, over 6,000 hours of volunteer service was done through Marlins Ayudan.   To continue our commitment to corporate and social responsibility, and in recognition of the vital role non-profits play in South Florida, the Marlins Foundation will select four 2013 Charity Partners to empower with a  $25,000 donation and season long benefits.“ said Miami Marlins President, David Samson.  “Additional benefits include volunteers from Marlins Ayudan, recognition throughout the season at Marlins Park, exposure with media partners and player involvement.” concluded Samson.

In addition to the $100,000 Charity Partner Empowerment Fund, the Marlins Foundation will continue to support South Florida charities, schools and neighborhood organizations throughout the year with other programs and fundraising initiatives.
