Mattingly Charities Inc. is a 501(c) (3) organization founded by Don Mattingly – New York Yankee Legend and current Manager of the L.A. Dodgers – and has been created to serve underprivileged youth by supporting programs which promote baseball and softball participation in conjunction with other developmentally related activities. Mattingly Charities will provide funding and services and equipment for baseball, softball, and ultimately other sports, and related youth activities, for the benefit of underprivileged youth, youth leagues, and social welfare organizations. 100% of the efforts of the organization will be focused on these activities.
Initially, Mattingly Charities will partner with existing charities that already have established operations and aligned mission statements and serve primarily as a source of funding and equipment for these organizations. Funding will be generated year round through various activities including special events and direct solicitation of the general public.
