Mission: Bringing life-changing opportunities to young people in need
Vision: In partnership with MSG Entertainment and MSG Sports, the Garden of Dreams Foundation provides young people in our communities with life-changing access to educational and skills opportunities; mentoring programs, and memorable experiences that enhance their lives, help shape their futures and create lasting joy. The Foundation focuses on young people facing illness or financial challenges, as well as children of uniformed personnel who have been lost or injured while serving our communities.
- Education: Through scholarships for college and trade schools, we inspire students to envision and begin to shape their futures.
- Inspiration: We run formal, meaningful programs where young people in our communities have opportunity to be inspired, mentored by and develop relationships with MSG Company and MSG Networks employees and talent in our workplaces.
- Grants: Through direct financial support for bricks and mortar improvements to community facilities, as well as for community-based sports, entertainment and media projects, we enhance the environment of young people where they live and grow.
- Joy: We utilize our unmatched line-up of events and assets to provide unforgettable experiences to young people that foster healing and joy. Far more than a singular moment in time, these ongoing experiences inspire courage and connection that offers both celebration and hope for the future.
