The Golden State Warriors have announced that the Warriors Community Foundation will donate a record $3.5 million as part of its annual grants slate this season, which tops last year’s $2.4 million as the most-ever awarded in a single season. The Warriors Community Foundation has now surpassed $35 million in impact to support education and youth development in the Bay Area since its inception in 2012.

The grants, ranging from $20,000 to $150,000, will be awarded to 62 Bay Area non-profits, including annual flagship grants to the Oakland Unified School District and San Francisco Unified School District.

Earlier this week, Warriors players and coaches made personal calls to various recipients of the 2023-24 Warriors Community Foundation season grants to inform them of their funds. Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr and guards Moses Moody and Gary Payton II were among the representatives to make calls on behalf of the Warriors Community Foundation.
