The Jake Peavy Foundation supports sports, music & the arts, and financial literacy programs that transform the lives of young people, particularly those in underserved and at-risk communities across America.
Jake’s grandfather, Blanche Peavy, taught him about baseball, music, and life: the meaning of focus and the importance of getting up when life knocks you down. These are the same values that Jake brings to his Foundation.
The Foundation currently reaches coast to coast to coast by building programs in markets where Jake has played throughout his career: Chicago, San Diego, Boston, San Francisco and in his hometown of Mobile, Alabama.
There are four main programs we are dedicated to here at the Jake Peavy Foundation.
These areas of focus provide support, education and growth in capacities that will positively affect a myriad of youth with interests spanning across the board.
Teaching this young population financial responsibility while encouraging their successes in their fields of interest allows for opportunity for great achievements as they grow into adulthood.
