Clutch City Foundation
Established in 1995, the Clutch City Foundation is the umbrella organization for all Rockets community initiatives. The mission of the foundation is to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate - especially children. Foundation efforts are focused on three primary areas: Education, Grassroots Basketball and Grassroots Outreach.
For inquiries or questions about the Houston Rockets Community initiatives and programs, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 50/50 Raffle is conducted at every Rockets home game. One winner will receive 50% of net proceeds and the other 50% will benefit the Clutch City Foundation.
Before every home game, a special celebrity will shoot the First Shot. A made basket will benefit Clutch City Foundation a sum of $5,000.
Education is the key to our children's future. Through the Clutch City Foundation, the Rockets have a myriad of programs that help make learning fun and exciting for area students.
The Rockets are committed to providing resources and opportunities for Houston's youth to play basketball. From clinics-to-leagues-to supporting high school athletic programs, the grassroots basketball initiatives keep youth in the game.
Grassroots Outreach provides financial assistance to non-profit organizations that need help in fulfilling their mission.
On April 4th, MassMutual Foundation welcomed over two thousand 8th graders to Toyota Center for MassMutual Foundation’s FutureSmart Challenge, a national financial education program in partnership with the Rockets and Junior Achievement of Southeast Texas. Hosted by award-winning actor and best-selling author Hill Harper and featuring Rockets legend Mo Taylor, the Rockets Launch Crew, and Rockets DJ T Gray, the FutureSmart Challenge empowers young leaders to make smart educational and financial choices.
Tilman Fertitta and the Houston Rockets thank the MassMutual Foundation for their contributions to this event!
