Mattingly Charities is a nonprofit organization and was founded in 2007 in North Haven, CT. The original mission of the charity was to provide funding for baseball/softball equipment and other youth development services for the benefit of underprivileged youth.
Mattingly Charities moved its headquarters in 2015 to Evansville, IN, Don and Lori Mattingly's hometown, based on their desire to help underserved children in the Evansville area.
In recent years, Mattingly Charities has expanded their focus from solely athletic programs to also include support for educational and social development programs.
We partner with a number of Evansville organizations whose mission aligns with ours, to fund programs/projects which provide youth athletics, education, and social development in underserved areas of the Evansville community. 100% of the efforts of Mattingly Charities is focused on these activities.
Lori and I both realize our foundation came from our childhood experiences in Evansville, the place we are proud to call our home. Our goal is to continue to establish and support programs for children where there is an unmet need. Continuing to grow the outreach of Mattingly Charities will require a strong commitment on our part along with the collaboration of the many organizations from the Evansville community. None of this could happen without the support of our many friends and family. --Don Mattingly
