The driving force behind the New York Yankees Fantasy Camp is the Yankees Foundation. The mission of the Foundation is to promote and sustain a cordial, cooperative relationship between the New York Yankees and its neighbors, and working together to enhance the life throughout the surrounding community.
The Yankees have contributed to the community through this philanthropic organization since 1973. Under the direction of the Steinbrenner family, the Foundation has raised over $4 million for athletic, recreational and educational programs for young people. Some of the organizations that receive assistance from the Foundation include the Urban League, Boys Club, Boy Scouts, Big Brothers, Catholic Youth Organizations, Police Athletic League, Special Olympics, Children's Health Fund, the YMCA and numerous other programs.
A portion of your camp fee is tax deductible. You will receive a letter from the Yankees acknowledging your specific donation for the year in which you attended camp.
