The Detroit Tigers Foundation is the official charity of the Detroit Tigers baseball club and is an affiliate of Ilitch Charities, a 501(c)(3) public charity. The mission of the Foundation is to enhance lives through the game of baseball with a focus on youth, education and recreation. From ticket donations and field renovation projects to an award winning, State-wide anti-bullying program, the Foundation aids in the development and funding of innovative programs that reach Tigers fans with positive messages and promote the good citizenship embodied in the storied history of the Detroit Tigers.
Since its inception in 2005, the Detroit Tigers Foundation has awarded over $21 million in grants, Tigers tickets and college scholarships throughout the State of Michigan, northern Ohio and southern Ontario, Canada. Grants have helped refurbish over 70 youth ballfields, establish three annual college scholarships, and fund Tiny Tigers, an annual t-ball and junior baseball program for over 600 children. This is all made possible through the generosity of the Tigers organization, its fans, players and partners. Support the Foundation’s mission today, with a tax deductible on-line donation!
