The Marlins is committed to leaving a lasting legacy that will make fans, neighbors, and partners proud through the values of corporate social responsibility and civic engagement, thus creating the Marlins Foundation. The Marlins Foundation partners with charities year-round to promote civic engagement throughout the local communities. In 2016 they partnered with After School All-Stars, Miami Children’s Museum, Up2US Sports, and 5000 Role Models of Excellence Project.
The Marlins Foundation works closely with Make-A-Wish Southern Florida to support its mission. The Marlins Foundation sponsors events such as the Walk For Wishes 5K in Broward and Dade, The InterContinental Miami Make-A-Wish Hotel Ball, Wings For Wishes, and The Dream Date Auction. Not only do they sponsor, the team that encompasses the Marlins is also passionate about granting wishes to children facing life-threatening medical conditions. In December of 2016, the Marlins Ayudan used their relay race through Ragnar to raise $15,000, enough to grant the wishes of three local children.
