The Giants have partnered with Wells Fargo to provide $100,000 in education grants to 25 Bay Area schools.

Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford and bank representatives presented the checks to principals, teachers and students at a ceremony at AT&T Park on Wednesday morning. The checks ranged from $1,000 to $5,000.

The event was part of the Step Up to the Plate for Education program, in which schools from San Francisco, Oakland, Antioch, Fairfield, Menlo Park, Napa, Redwood City, San Jose, Santa Rosa and other cities are receiving funding to support athletics and other school programming.

The schools — which include parochial, independent and public schools — were nominated by community members earlier this year. Schools can also apply for grants online.
