"I believe in using my gifts and public image to help the community."

This year marks the twelfth year of the Chipper Jones Family Foundation, which has made huge strides in giving back to the communities which helped Chipper get to where he is today. Organizations like the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Pediatric Cancer Foundation, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, The Miracle League, Make a Wish Foundation, Rally Foundation, Camp Twin Lakes, the Florida and Georgia Sheriffs' Youth Ranches, Little League programs in Atlanta and Pierson, FL, Stetson University, and the Boys and Girls Clubs have all received gifts from Chipper's Foundation.


Chipper's golf tournament became a staple in the Atlanta area for 12 years as the tournament for organizations, individuals and celebrities not to miss. Over those years, the Foundation raised over $2 million for Cystic Fibrosis, Camp Twin Lakes, Stetson University and Childrens' Healthcare of Atlanta. Chipper now lends his name and time to several golf tournaments in Florida and Georgia to continue to tradition of raising money or these charitable and educational organizations. It is through this dedication to give his time and money that has led him to receive the prestigious Marvin Miller Man of the Year Award as chosen by his peers in Major League Baseball.



The Foundation's now famous Around the Horn Program Field of Dreams Program has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to area youth baseball programs for repairing and refurbishing youth ballparks in Florida and Georgia. Fields all over the Southeast have been given grants to build or repair fields in order to keep baseball alive in small communities like Pierson and DeLand, FL and throughout the City of Atlanta. Chipper's work with The Miracle League is also wide spread and focuses on physically challenged kids getting the opportunity to step between the lines and experience the game of baseball. The Foundation remains committed to improving youths' interest in baseball and will continue to do so for his entire life.

The fight against pediatric cancer and cystic fibrosis has also always been important to the Foundation and Chipper. The Foundation works closely with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the Pediatric Cancer Foundation, the Rally Foundation and Childrens' Healthcare of Atlanta in sponsoring each organization's events and to give Chipper's time to the kids and people involved with these worthwhile charities. Furthermore, Chipper's work with the Boys and Girls Club, Make a Wish Foundation and Camp Twin Lakes all involve a common theme and something that is dear and near to Chipper's heart - making kids' lives better.
