CLEVELAND — Stephen Curry is donating more than $100,000 to a northeast Ohio school district after winning MVP during the 2022 NBA All-Star Game in Cleveland on Sunday.
Under Armour announced last week that the Cleveland Metropolitan School District would receive $1,000 for every point and $3,000 for every three-pointer scored by the Golden State Warriors basketball player. Under Armour said Curry’s brand would also donate an additional $10,000 if he won MVP.
It’s a feat he accomplished, delivering the greatest long-distance shooting performance in All-Star Game history with a total of 16 3-pointers and 50 points scored for a total of $108,000.
According to Under Armour, all of the money donated will go directly toward basketball programs in Cleveland schools, as well as efforts to ensure all coaches receive training from the Positive Coaching Alliance.
“Even as we deal with the pandemic, we continue to invest in academic and extracurricular programs that our students need and deserve,” Cleveland Metropolitan School District CEO Eric Gordon said in a statement to Under Armour. “We are grateful for this generous support of our middle school basketball program and the help it provides to accomplish our goal."
