In 2019, the Golden State Warriors left Oakland for the glitz, glamour and money of San Francisco. Nearly four years later, Steph Curry continues to keep his promise to never forget the community that helped him launch a dynasty.
Eat. Learn. Play., the charitable foundation Steph Curry heads with his wife Ayesha, announced Wednesday plans for a new movement to raise and donate more than $50 million to the Oakland Unified School District by 2026 to help local children “dream bigger” and give them “the opportunity to live up to their truest potential.”

The new initiative will focus on supporting the well-being of Oakland children through “access to nutritious meals, quality reading resources, and opportunities for play and physical activity.” In 2026, the goal of Eat. Learn. Play. is to “transform the school experience for a generation of students.”
“These children deserve to have the opportunity to reach their full potential.”, Steph Curry told CBS.
“These are three very simple things in life that every child should have access to.”, said Ayesha Curry, Steph’s wife, speaking about food.
