"Last year, 'Players for a Purpose' raised a total of $760,000, the largest amount ever in the event's then five-year history," said John York, 49ers Co-Chairman and Foundation Board Member. "We look forward to kicking off this football season by welcoming fans into our home for a night of fun and collaborative giving to benefit historically underserved Bay Area communities."
"The 2022 season was full of significant impact for the Foundation. After kicking off the season with a record-setting Players for a Purpose event, the Foundation passed the $60M lifetime milestone in funding invested back into Bay Area communities" said Justin Prettyman, 49ers Foundation Executive Director. "Now in its sixth year, this fundraiser has become something that 49ers fans circle on their calendars. We can't wait to welcome them again on August 28th."
"'Players for a Purpose' has become a distinguished tradition in the storied history of the 49ers organization," said Dave Martinez, Senior Director, SAP Marketing. "SAP is proud to partner with the 49ers Foundation to raise awareness and support for initiatives which have a significant positive impact on Bay Area youth."
