Monkey Knife Fight (MKF), one of the fastest growing fantasy sports platforms in North America, has announced a partnership with the San Francisco Giants and a donation of at least $50,000 to the Giants Community Fund.
Since March, the Fund has converted the majority of its programming to help families affected by the challenges caused by COVID-19.
Under the terms of the alliance, an outfield tarp and cutouts of MKF’s logo, Furious George, will be placed in Oracle Park, while the firm has committed to donating $10,000 each time a ball hits either the “Hit It Here” tarp or one of the cutouts. The daily fantasy sports site will donate a minimum of $50,000 with no limit.
“It’s important for Monkey Knife Fight to give back to our communities, especially those that struggle with access to resources,” said CEO and Founder Bill Asher. “The Giants Community Fund does amazing and impactful work in San Francisco and throughout Northern California, and we wanted to be a part of that.”
Jason Pearl, Senior Vice President and Chief Business Development Officer of the Giants, welcomed the initiative. He said: “The San Francisco Giants are proud to partner with Monkey Knife Fight at Oracle Park this season and showcase their innovative gaming platform to our fans.
“We are thankful for the generous support Monkey Knife Fight will provide to the Giants Community Fund which will help those most in need in our community during these difficult times.”
