The Jays Care Foundation Board of Directors has approved the disbursement of $520,837 through their 2012 Grand Slam Grants. This initiative will provide funding to 13 charitable organizations to serve children and youth in the areas of physical activity, education and life-skill development.

“We have focused our community investment efforts on providing opportunities for children and youth in education, physical activity and life-skill development, where possible, through the great sport of baseball,” explained Jays Care Foundation Executive Director, Danielle Bedasse. “We are pleased to have such tremendous partners in all of our Grand Slam Grant recipient charities. Through our grants, legacy initiatives and program partnerships, Jays Care served more than 17,000 children and youth across the country in 2011 alone.”

Last year, through Grand Slam Grants, Field of Dreams, Home Run Scholars and Rookie League, Jays Care contributed more than $1.4 million to initiatives and facilities across Ontario and beyond.
