PROGRAM HISTORY & OVERVIEW

Good Tidings Foundation partners exclusively with the San Francisco Giants, Golden State Warriors, San Jose Sharks, Oakland Athletics, Sacramento Kings, San Francisco 49ers, NY Yankee CC Sabathia, Olympic Gold Medalist Kerri Walsh and other professional athletes to build or refurbish facilities that benefit underserved communities. Since 1997, Good Tidings has constructed 160 athletic facilities throughout the Greater Bay Area. Our gifts continue to give year round, providing a safe, healthy place for families and youth to play and enjoy.

  • 63 Basketball Courts
  • 24 Tennis Courts
  • 36 Baseball Fields
  • 10 Street Hockey Courts
  • 3 Football Fields
  • 3 Fitness Centers
  • 5 Volleyball Courts
  • Other Park Improvements

Every location undergoes a drastic makeover, transforming them from unusable to state-of-the-art. These renovations develop the community structurally and enable impressionable children to develop physically, emotionally and psychologically in a safe environment. Our facilities turned abandoned, needle-littered dead space into family activity zones and community gathering areas. They become destinations and bring excitement and value to communities, drawing families out of their homes to engage with neighbors.

Good Tidings has a full-time Turf Manager who is constantly monitoring and assisting communities with the ongoing maintenance.

PROJECT PRESERVATION

Our commitment to the communities we serve is so strong that we hired a full-time Athletic Field Maintenance Manager in 2010 to help with our 'Project Preservation' and maintain our over 140 facilities long-term. We work with professional contractors and use only the finest natural materials to reinforce that our youth deserve the best.

PROJECT ASSISTANCE

With budgets decreasing or being eliminated, we receive many requests to help out local fields and courts that need just a few days work and resources to get them into playable condition. On some occasions, Good Tidings will depart from our regular projects to help out those in the most need, to give the local youth the opportunity to participate in sports.

MATERIAL DONATIONS

Local communities sometimes simply lack the resources to provide materials necessary to make their fields and courts playable, and we may be able to make material donations.

TESTIMONIAL

With the daunting task of rebuilding the North Vallejo Little League field ahead of us, we knew we needed a strong organizer and the Good Tidings Foundation filled that role. Day after day, they tirelessly pulled together all the different contractors and suppliers to transform a run-down facility into a beautiful place for Little Leaguers to call home. I commend them for their work and thank them for their dedication. This field means everything to me. CC Sabathia, New York Yankees
