Sacramento Kings Foundation to Use Proceeds In 2015-16 Grant Program

Sacramento, Calif. – Today, the Sacramento Kings and Amazon collectibles announced a collaborative effort allowing fans around the globe direct access to Kings memorabilia and artifacts. Each sale will directly benefit the Sacramento Kings Foundation and its commitment to #DoGood throughout the Sacramento region.

Amazon’s collectibles category will create the first ever National Basketball Association (NBA) team storefont – – where the Kings Foundation will make game worn and autographed jerseys, player edition sneakers, verified player autographs, historic Kings artifacts and additional memorabilia available directly from the team. As the team prepares to move to Golden 1 Center – the new sports and entertainment center in the heart of downtown Sacramento – fans will have an opportunity to collect one-of-a-kind items from Sleep Train Arena.

“The best fans in the NBA now have a chance to get their hands on special items from our proud past and present that only we can provide,” said Kings President Chris Granger. “We have a unique opportunity to share our history, benefit our community and enhance the lives we touch. It is a special way to connect with the team and #DoGood at the same time.”

Throughout the 2015-16 season, the Sacramento Kings Foundation will provide regional non-profits opportunities to highlight and bolster their impacts in the Sacramento region with a new grants program. The new program will look to make key investments in health, education, and sustainability.

When Kings Owner and Chairman Vivek Ranadivé purchased the team in 2013, he implemented a forward-thinking NBA 3.0 philosophy on and off the court. This program touches the three key vectors of NBA 3.0 – utilizing technology, expanding the Sacramento brand across the globe and using sport as an agent of social good in the community.
