Warriors Free Throws For Futures, Presented by PG&E and the PG&E Corporation Foundation, Donates $641,000 to Bay Area Youth

Warriors Community Foundation Distributes Over $4.5 Million Throughout 2023-24 Season

The Warriors Community Foundation, in partnership with Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) and The PG&E Corporation Foundation (PG&E Foundation), has granted a total of $641,000 to four Bay Area nonprofit organizations, equating to $160,250 each, as part of the Warriors’ Free Throws For Futures program, it was announced today. 

Through Free Throws For Futures, each Warriors’ made free throw during the regular season yielded $500 for four education focused nonprofit organizations working locally to improve opportunities and successful outcomes for youth.

Prior to yesterday’s game, the Warriors Community Foundation hosted a pregame reception and check presentation to celebrate this year’s Free Throws for Futures grant.

Golden State’s 1,282 made free throws through the 2023-24 NBA regular season slate of 82 games resulted in a total grant of $641,000. The amount raised by the Warriors Community Foundation, through a charitable grant by the PG&E Foundation, provided each of the four organizations with $160,250.

“PG&E and The PG&E Corporation Foundation are excited to support this program that combines the fun of sports with charitable giving to nonprofit organizations focused on the academic achievement and educational equity of Bay Area students,” said PG&E Corporation Executive Vice President, Corporate Affairs and Chief Sustainability Officer, and Chair of the Board of The PG&E Foundation Carla Peterman. Peterman also serves on the Board of Directors for the Warriors Community Foundation.
