Chasing the Dream Foundation

Hank Aaron started the foundation with his wife Billye in the hope of inspiring young people to develop their skills and pursue their passions. The Dreamchaser Scholarship, presented annually, is awarded to students with limited financial capabilities from all over the country.

His life-long passion was to increase minority participation in baseball whether that was on the field, in baseball operations, on the business side in a front office, or at Major League Baseball, his commitment to creating opportunities, access, and equity across the sport he so dominated was unwavering.

The Henry Louis Aaron Fund

In continued pursuit of his efforts, the Atlanta Braves announced the formation of the Henry Louse Aaron Fund under the Atlanta Braves Foundation, with an initial $1 million commitment. Major League Baseball and the MLBPA committed to matching this investment with an additional $1 million. We are inviting fans and friends of Mr. Aaron to build with us.

Funds will be directed to programs and initiatives that will carry forward Mr. Aaron’s desire to see more equity across baseball, his passion for education, and his legacy in our communities.
