For every remaining Dallas Mavericks home game victory, Head Coach Jason Kidd will make a financial donation to support youth education and after-school programs for underserved communities across North Texas. As part of the Dallas Mavericks and Jason Kidd Foundation commitment to youth education and empowerment in the community, Coach Kidd will personally donate $5,000 per home game win. Fans can also join Coach Kidd and donate.
In addition to the “J-Kidd for the Win” initiative, Coach Kidd supports female youth basketball programs that help educate and develop future leaders by refining their skills on the court and in the classroom.
“I am thrilled to announce the ‘J-Kidd for The Win’ program that will benefit Communities in Schools of the Dallas Region, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas, Boys & Girls Club of Greater Tarrant County, and Bold Idea for the remainder of this season,” said Kidd. “I thank the Dallas Mavericks for joining me in turning wins on the court into wins for the kids in the Dallas-Fort Worth community.”
Distributed by the Mavs Foundation, the donation will help fund three local organizations dedicated to youth education and programming:
Communities In Schools of the Dallas Region – working to foster educational equity by addressing the needs of marginalized, low income and disenfranchised students in the North Texas community.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas and Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Tarrant County – providing world-class club experiences for every young person who enters the doors, keeping all members on track to graduate from high school and demonstrate good character and citizenship.
Bold Idea – helping students discover computer science through hands-on learning and mentoring with industry professionals, building critical thinking skills and equipping students to succeed in the careers of the future.
