Thompson Family Foundation Celebrity Golf Tournament.

The mission of the Thompson Family Foundation is to enrich the lives of youth in the United States and the Bahamas through fitness and education.

Good Tidings Foundation

Every year Thompson also partners with the Good Tidings Foundation to take a group of children on a shopping spree and to enjoy a holiday meal. Klay took the sixth grade class from Eastside Prep in East Palo Alto on a shopping spree to Talbots Toyland in San Mateo. In 2015, Thompson and Good Tidings also plan on partnering to build a youth basketball court in the Bay Area. Throughout the Holiday season, Thompson also takes part in a variety of fan meet and greets before and after games with local community groups and fans from his ticket section, the Klaymakers. Every season, Thompson has donated 12 tickets for each Warriors home game to his player section to allow underserved families and youth to have the opportunity to attend an NBA game.

Thanksgiving holiday

Thompson donated $20,000 to the City of Oakland’s Annual Thanksgiving Dinner, providing over 2,000 low-income families, seniors and homeless individuals with a Thanksgiving meal. Thompson also surprised a deserving Bay Area family with a shopping spree at Lucky Supermarket to ensure they had a memorable Thanksgiving. In addition, Thompson took time out of his schedule to serve a Thanksgiving-style dinner and play interactive games with families and youth from Boys and Girls Clubs of San Francisco, Youth Chance High School, Stay Alive and Free, and Embarcadero, Mission and Bayview Hunters Point YMCAs at the team’s Thanksgiving Dinner event. All of these events took part during the Warriors Plays for the Holidays and NBA Cares’ Season of Giving Campaign.

Northern California wildfires

In late October 2017, Thompson participated in local efforts to raise money for relief for the October 2017 Northern California wildfires, donating $1,000 for every point he scored in home games against the Washington Wizards, Toronto Raptors, and Detroit Pistons. With additional sponsor and fan matching Thompson was able to increase that to $5,223 per point, ultimately raising $360,374 by tallying 69 points across the three games.
