Good Tidings Foundation, founded in 1995, is a 501-(c)-3 children's charity that looks to equally support the growth of marginalized youth in Northern California and beyond by creating environments for Athletics, Arts, Education, and Wonder. We engage in charitable partnerships with professional sports teams, pro athletes and other leaders who share our vision on how to create projects within our mission. We believe that every child deserves to have the means to achieve their dreams regardless of financial status, ethnic origin, religion or region of living. It is the Spirit of the Holiday Season, which we were founded upon, with the joy of giving in its simplest form that we look to emulate all year long. Our 'mission over money' philosophy is the foundation for everything we do.
