As our signature program for awarding gifts to non-profits, the Charity Partner Empowerment Fund allows us to invest in innovative organizations that are impacting our local community. In addition to the $25,000 donation, organizations will benefit from unique and exciting offerings. Charity Partners can bring public awareness to their causes through Marlins media coverage as well as in-game promotional and fundraising opportunities.
The Marlins Foundation is delighted to provide support to a wide range of charities and community organizations each year in an effort to help raise funds for worthwhile causes through the In Kind Donation Program. The Marlins assist organizations with donations of memorabilia and other items for auctions, raffles and events as one way of supporting the thousands of great organizations in South Florida.
Join the Marlins Foundation every home game for the 50/50 Raffle. Fans have the opportunity to win 50% of the net proceeds raised that day, with the remaining proceeds benefitting the hosting charity. On select games, the Marlins Foundation partners with local organizations to raise funds while raising awareness at Marlins Park through the 50/50 Raffle Program.
