As reported in the San Francisco Chronicle, the San Francisco Bay Area Super Bowl 50 Host Committee will be distributing $2.5M worth of grants among five Bay Area non-profits.

First Place is honored to have been selected as one of the grantee organizations. This $500K grant will help us change the lives of at-risk foster kids and expand our model to reach even more young people. Our partnership with the 50 Fund will also help to bring national attention to the challenges facing foster kids learning to support themselves.
