Mission Statement

Good Tidings Foundation, founded in 1995, is a 501-(c)-3 children's charity that looks to equally support ARTS, EDUCATION, ATHLETICS and DREAMS for youth from communities of need in the Greater Bay Area. Good Tidings creates original projects and works in partnership with professional sports franchises, businesses and agencies throughout the Bay Area, leveraging resources in order to increase access to enriching opportunities by deserving youth. We design, fund and build projects that are maintained and programmed in perpetuity by school districts, recreation departments, or city governments. We believe that every child deserves to have the means to achieve his or her dreams regardless of financial status, ethnic background, religion, or region of living. It is the spirit of the holiday season that we were founded upon that we look to emulate all year long.

Our general boundaries include the cities of Monterey/Salinas/Hollister/Los Banos to the south, Turlock/Modesto/Lodi/Davis to the east, and Bodega Bay/Santa Rosa/Calistoga to the north.

Description

Good Tidings’ has partnered exclusively with the Giants, A’s, 49ers, Warriors, Sharks and professional athletes to build or refurbish nearly 100 athletic facilities that benefit underserved neighborhoods to date. We offer daily field-trips to our LeRoy Neiman Art Center for Youth on San Francisco’s Pier 9 to hundreds of middle school students each year at no charge. Our education program awards $100,000 annually in Community Service Scholarships to needy high school seniors performing unselfish acts to serve their community, with $889,000 awarded to date.
