Sean Perkins was a kind, gentle, humble, funny and respectful human being. In addition to being all those things, he was also very generous to individuals in need within the city of Newburyport and the greater Newburyport area as well. This foundation seeks to promote and continue Sean’s legacy of kindness and his desire to quietly help and improve the lives of those struggling with hardships. As such, we provide assistance to the needy in the greater Newburyport community by supporting human needs, sports necessities, educational scholarships, as well as offering hope and encouraging self-sufficiency for those in need.
He was born in Newburyport on May 24, 1979 to Raymond A. Perkins and the late Elizabeth (Kelleher) Perkins. Sean was raised and educated in Newburyport, graduating from Newburyport High School, class of 1998. During his high school years, Sean was a four-year varsity stand-out first baseman for the Newburyport Clippers baseball team. Playing alongside his best friend Grant Smith, Sean and Grant set many Clipper baseball records. He was an All-Star his sophomore year, an All-League his junior and senior years and was a two-time Bay State Games player his junior and senior years. He was also chosen to play in the Agganis Games. He had baseball scholarship offers from over 200 universities and colleges to play baseball, but instead, decided to further his education, graduating from Merrimack College, class of 2002.Learn More
