Since forming the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation in 1997, a year before the expansion team took the field in 1998, the organization and the Foundation have made charitable contributions totaling $25.8 million to non-profit organizations throughout Arizona over the last 14 years. The organization’s total giving includes $17.2 million in donations from the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation and an additional $8.6 million from the club for sponsorships of local charitable events and cash contributions for multi-year capital campaigns to various organizations. The D-backs became the first professional sports team to win the inaugural 2010 United Nations NGO Positive Peace Award, which names the organization as the most positive team in the world and recognizes organizations that positively impact their community through corporate responsibility.
