Throughout its long history, the Pittsburgh Pirates have developed deep-rooted relationships in the greater Pittsburgh region and beyond. The Pirates have supported many non-profit and civic organizations through a variety of charitable and community efforts, specifically charitable giving, memorabilia, merchandise and ticket donations, and volunteerism.
With the establishment in late 2006 of Pirates Charities as the philanthropic arm of the organization, the Pirates set out to formalize its charitable efforts and make an even greater impact in meeting the needs of our region. It is the mission of Pirates Charities to strengthen the community by supporting organizations and programs aimed at improving the lives of children and adults. Pirates Charities places a special emphasis on supporting youth programs focused on health, fitness, and education by developing partnerships with those who share in our mission.
With the generous support of Pirates fans, friends and sponsors, Pirates Charities has donated over $4 million since its inception in 2006. We hope you will visit our website frequently to explore our most-current Pirates Charities projects and programs. Thank you for your interest and support of Pirates Charities!
