49ers Foundation raises record-breaking donations at annual event

On Sunday, the 49ers Foundation hosted their annual "Players for a Purpose" event, presented by SAP, at Levi's Stadium, where the Faithful interacted with 49ers' players, coaches, executives, and alumni in an evening filled with festivities, including a "49ers Faithful Feud," presented by U.S. Bank.

A total of $760,000 was raised at the event—the largest amount in the event's five-year history, eclipsing last year's mark of $650,000, which followed the 2020 COVID season.

The funds will go towards the Foundation's mission to educate and empower Bay Area youth through collective and innovative community-focused strategies. All 49ers Foundation programs and beneficiaries will be helped by the generosity of the Faithful and team partners, including the Foundation's two direct-funded programs: 49ers EDU presented by Chevron and 49ers PREP presented by U.S. Bank.

49ers defensive tackle Arik Armstead gave the keynote address at the event after former running back Raheem Mostert gave last year's speech with his wife Devon.

"Players for a Purpose" is the only yearly event where the entire team comes out on the field to interact with the fans, according to the Foundation's executive director Justin Prettyman, and the night was one to remember for several of the Faithful.

Here's a look at each 49ers' position group coming out with several members of 49ers' Foundation initiatives:

Quarterbacks and Wide Receivers


Running Backs and Tight Ends


Offensive Line


Defensive Line and Linebackers


Cornerbacks and Safeties


Special Teams

Breaking Down the 49ers' First-Half Struggles and Successes

By JD Salazar
Oct 2

Since taking over in 2017, head coach Kyle Shanahan has been hailed as an offensive innovator capable of directing one of the NFL's best offensive systems. Anecdotally, however, I've noticed that the 49ers under his guidance too often start out frustratingly slow, garnering meager first-half point totals despite outplaying the opposition. In light of this, I wanted to take a deep dive into some of these stats and investigate what they really showed about the 49ers' offensive capabilities, and whether or not the team has been truly underperforming its status as a premiere NFL offense. For each of the last 3.5 years, each game will be broken down into three categories: 49ers' first half total points, first half differential, and game differential. "1st half tot." is fairly



49ers Notebook: Talanoa Hufanga's improvement; Brian Griese's impact; DJ Jones talks 49ers; Why is Jimmy G so loud?

Today marked another day of media rounds for the San Francisco 49ers, with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans, and run game coordinator/offensive line coach Chris Foerster being among those to speak to reporters in Santa Clara. Among the topics discussed in those media sessions were the improvement of safety Talanoa Hufanga, the impact of new quarterbacks coach Brian Griese, and where Jimmy Garoppolo gets his vocal power from. There were also some quotes of note to come from outside 49ers facilities, including some thoughts from former 49ers defensive tackle D.J. Jones as he gets set to face his former team when the 49ers face the Broncos in Denver on Sunday night. Here's a rundown of those topics and more in this version of 49ers



49ers Notebook: The Trent Williams effect; Shanahan on his decision to decline key penalty; A familiar face haunts 49ers

The sooner everyone moves on from the 49ers' dreadful 11-10 loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday night the better. But first, let's tie up some loose ends to come from Sunday's postgame interviews. Much of the postgame discussion surrounded the performance of the 49ers' offense, which was poor enough to squander a defensive effort that held the Broncos' offense to just nine points. But there was also some honesty regarding the loss of left tackle Trent Williams, some insight from head coach Kyle Shanahan on why he declined an important first half penalty, and much more. Let's get into a roundup of some of Sunday's postgame comments in this edition of 49ers Notebook. George Kittle's honesty on the loss of Trent Williams and the performance of the



49ers vs. Broncos defensive grades: Another defensive masterclass ruined for the 49ers

By Rohan Chakravarthi

The San Francisco 49ers suffered another head-scratching loss, this time to the Denver Broncos on Sunday Night Football by the score of 11-10, in a game where the defensive brilliance could not overcome the offensive woes. Here are the defensive grades for the 49ers in Week 3: Defensive Line: A About 90 minutes prior to game time, reports surfaced that the 49ers would be without star defensive tackle Arik Armstead, potentially making the matchup even tougher, especially with San Francisco facing off against the strong running back duo of Javonte Williams and
