SMP Community Fund, Inc.
Recognizing the importance of the communities surrounding Turner Field, The Authority and the Atlanta Braves have combined efforts to build and enhance community relations with the neighborhoods surrounding the ballpark.
The Summerhill, Mechanicsville and Peoplestown neighborhoods welcome thousands of fans into their communities each year with every home baseball game and Turner Field special event. The SMP Community Fund, Inc., a shared initiative of The Authority and Atlanta Braves, was created to ensure the stadium neighborhoods continue to provide services and programs for its residents.
The SMP Community Fund, Inc. is underwritten by the Authority and the Braves. Seven appointed Directors serve on the SMP Community Fund's Board. The funds may be used for community based educational, cultural, religious and athletic events.
