The Giants became the first professional sports team to host an HIV/AIDS benefit game, as they initiated "Until There's A Cure Day" in 1994. Since, the Giants and the Giants Community Fund have raised more than $1.3 million for Bay Area HIV/AIDS education and research and care and service organizations.
Among professional sports teams, the Giants were also pioneers when it came to recording a video for the "It Gets Better Project," a campaign dedicated to improving the lives for LGBT youth. The team also participated in last October's Spirit Day, GLAAD's annual anti-bullying initiative.
In May, the club will host its 11th annual LGBT Night Out, a game that celebrates LGBT fans and their allies. Proceeds will go toward local LGBT organizations.
