– Initiative to Benefit Six LA Area Nonprofit Organizations Throughout the MLB Regular Season,starting with Think Together for the month of April – – Ks for a Cause Will Provide Grants via the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation –
Los Angeles Dodgers All-Star pitcher Trevor Bauer has launched a season-long giveback initiative – Ks for a Cause – to support local nonprofit organizations focused on STEM and/or youth programming in the greater Los Angeles area, he announced today.
Bauer will donate $1,000 per strikeout (K) throughout the regular season. Each month, a different nonprofit organization will be designated. Bauer will fully fund the initiative through grants via the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation(LADF). He will also partner with LADF to evaluate potential partner organizations and to work with receiving organizations.
“This season, I’m looking forward to giving back to my hometown community in a meaningful way,” said Bauer. “I’m excited to launch Ks for a Cause to support several incredible nonprofit organizations doing impactful work to promote STEM and offer a variety of youth programming across the greater Los Angeles area. It’s really the perfect initiative for me, as it combines two things I love in life: strikeouts and helping others.”
Additionally, Bauer will highlight these organizations through a new, dedicated content series on his YouTube Channel and with limited-edition Ks for a Cause merchandise on his website (coming soon). All proceeds from merchandise sales will benefit that month’s designated beneficiary organization.
For the month of April, Bauer will support Think Together. Founded in 1997, Think Together partners with schools to change the odds for kids. The organization delivers nationally recognized early learning programs, afterschool programs, student support services, and school improvement. Specifically, Bauer’s donation will help fund afterschool STEM and robotics programming for middle school students in southeast Los Angeles.
