The Angels Baseball Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of children in need within our community and provides funding for youth in crisis, youth health initiatives, youth baseball programs, and youth education.

Through their involvement in a variety of outreach programs and non-profit organizations, Angels Baseball has proven to be a valuable member of the surrounding community. From laying down the foundation one brick at a time with the Angels Brick Program to helping fund local and national youth organizations, the Angels Baseball Foundation focuses on initiatives aimed to create and improve Education, Healthcare, Arts & Sciences, and Community related youth programs throughout the region, in addition to providing children the opportunity to experience the great game of baseball and its countless positive attributes.

Since its inception in 2004, the Angels Baseball Foundation has awarded many grants to worthy organizations throughout the community, ranging from music programs to at-risk youth shelters. In 2006, the Angels Baseball Foundation established the Angels Scholars program and annually provides partial scholarships to academically talented, financially disadvantaged public middle school students in Orange County upon their acceptance into a four year college.

The Angels work with various groups that promote the health of the community through awareness, treatment and research programs. The club teams with many healthcare organizations with a common goal of improving the lives of others. The Foundation also takes great pride in supporting nation-wide youth programs such as the Boys & Girls Clubs as well as providing financial assistance to youth baseball clinics, camps and recreational programs that promote the game of baseball and softball. Together with the Angels Baseball Foundation, these local and national organizations help shape the lives of thousands and, in many cases, help nurture the hopes and dreams of the countless youths involved.

The majority of the funding the Angels Baseball Foundation receives comes from team fundraisers and donations from local citizens and private organizations. By simply donating $35 to the Angels Baseball Foundation, fans have the opportunity to post a birthday, anniversary, or welcome message during a game on the Angel Vision Board. One can become a permanent part of Angel Stadium of Anaheim by purchasing a personalized brick for $104 that will be placed at the stadium’s main entrance.

Our Reflections on the Game

Advice and reflections from the Glanville Team

Thoughts from James


Anaheim, Angels stadium. We were in the shade which is a good idea because it can be hot in the sun for 9 innings. They have fries. Iceees to drink and help keep you cool. We sat behind home plate and you can see everything.James

Christie’s Thoughts

Anaheim Stadium Anaheim California. We sat behind home plate and were able to eat at the private club level, which was great! The salmon was delicious! The only downside was getting out of the parking lot which took 30 minutes just to get out on the road.Christie
