Multnomah Athletic Foundation inspires and enables youth participation in athletics across the Portland metro area. Each month, the Foundation accepts contributions to honor club members.
MAF Powered by MAC
MAC and MAF, or the Multnomah Athletic Foundation, are deeply connected to each other and the surrounding community. MAF is the charitable arm of MAC, and it provides more than $200,000 each year in scholarships and grants to local nonprofit organizations that keep kids active and playing.
MAF is powered by MAC, and it in turn powers students to achieve their academic and athletic goals. MAF scholarships help students to attend college despite financial need, encourage volunteerism and community involvement, and emphasize the importance of diversity.
Scholarships available to local students through this partnership between MAF and MAC include:
MAC Employee Scholarship
MAC Scholar Athlete Program
Sport Scholarship Programs
MAF grants help local nonprofit organizations help others. Grant partners invest in nearby communities and neighborhoods, and encourage athletic participation as a means of building character and developing life skills.
Here are some of the ways the Foundation's grants make a difference:
Funding for program development, continuation and expansion
Support to enable organization to carry out their core missions by strengthening organizational capacity and program sustainability
Funding for specific projects with capital expenditures, such as equipment and facilities
