Touchdowns for Kids

Touchdowns for Kids

The San Francisco 49ers have had a great success both on and off the field, thanks to Touchdowns for Kids (TFK). TFK is a collaborative program sponsored by the San Francisco 49ers, Taube Philanthropies, and Koret. In its fifth year, TFK provides funding for several organizations that serve disadvantaged youth in the Bay Area. Funding for each organization is based on the 49ers’ successes on the field: every time the 49ers score a touchdown or field goal or record an interception or sack, Touchdowns for Kids makes a donation to improve the lives of at-risk Bay Area youth. Since its inception in 2011, TFK has provided more than $1.25 million to 19 youth organizations.

This season, Touchdowns for Kids supports eight Bay Area organizations:

–  San Francisco 49ers Academy

–  Breakthrough Collaborative

–  La Casa de las Madres

–  Little Kids Rock

–  Ronald McDonald House at Stanford

–  Silicon Valley Education Foundation & the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute

–  Silicon Valley FACES

–  Somos Mayfair
