Excerpt from MLB site:
Sergio Romo is actively involved with a youth program called Athletes in Math Succeed (AIMS). Founded at a local San Francisco high school, AIMS was created to inspire minority male students to challenge themselves academically, be role models for elementary school children and to encourage them in preparation to complete a college degree.For nearly five seasons, Sergio has consistently lent his time and has allocated $10,000 to the AIMS mentoring program. With personal visits and participation in the AIMS events, he has become an avid supporter of the mentoring program.

AIMS receives AT&T and San Francisco Giants $10,000 grant!

We were absolutely blown away to receive a call from the Giants and later the following part of an email:

On behalf of AT&T and the San Francisco Giants, we are pleased to let you know that AIMS has been selected to receive a $10,000 grant from the 2014 Community All Stars program. The program, now celebrating its 10th year, awards annual cash grants to five outstanding non-profit organizations that provide vital programs, resources, services and support to those in need in our community. 

AIMS relies on donations to help our students.  We are very thankful for AT&T, the Giants, and Sergio’s belief in us!
