Founded in 1992, the 49ers Foundation supports developmental programs for underserved youth that keep them “Safe, On Track, and In School.” Having celebrated its 20th anniversary, the Foundation has donated over $20 million to non-profits focused on family violence prevention programs and activities that teach youth leadership and respect.

Under Denise and John’s guidance and with the hands-on support of their children, 49ers’ Jed, Tony, Jenna, and Mara, daughter-in-law Danielle and grandson Jaxon, philanthropy has become embedded in the core culture of the 49ers entire organization. Staff, owners, current players and alumni are committed to creating strong families, schools and communities through financial support, in-kind donations and hands-on community service. Demonstrating this commitment, one hundred percent of the team’s players have participated in one or more community events each of the last three years.

In recognition of their community involvement, the DeBartolo York Family and the 49ers Foundation have been honored with a number of accolades including City Year’s Service Leadership Award, Silicon Valley Exemplary Community Leadership Award by Silicon Valley FACES, Outstanding Corporate Philanthropy Award at the Catholic Charities/Catholic Youth Organization’s Loaves & Fishes Dinner, and inclusion on the Top Corporate Philanthropists list for the San Jose/Silicon Valley Business Journal. Most recently the 49ers Foundation received the prestigious 2013 Steve Patterson Award for Excellence in Sports Philanthropy from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and was one of four finalists for the Beyond Sport International Sports Philanthropy Award.
