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.
In partnership with the Commissioner's Community Initiative, Major League Baseball and Players Giveback and Marlins Corporate Partners, we are excited to be able to provide complimentary tickets to underserved youth-focused organizations, as well as other organizations that serve our community.
Tickets may be requested by completing the on-line form below.
All ticket requests must be accompanied with a letter on the nonprofit organization letterhead, describing the organization (upload instructions are detailed in the on-line form below).
Ticket requests are based on availability and are filled on a first come, first serve basis.
Ballpark Buddies is unable to accommodate more than 500 tickets per organization this season. The Marlins Group Ticket Office offers a number of affordable options for groups of 20 or more. For more information please call 1-877-MARLINS.
