Positive experiences in sport and physical activity are critical to developing healthy kids and building healthy communities. That’s why as part of the Play It Forward Award, presenting sponsors Nike and Providence have also donated a combined $50,000 to kick start the new Play It Forward Award Fund managed by the Oregon Sports Authority Foundation.
The Play It Forward Award Fund supports nonprofit organizations that are providing access to physical activity and sport opportunities for youth throughout Oregon. This funding will support organizations focusing on elementary and middle school youth.
The goal of this fund is to increase access to sport across the state of Oregon, targeting those with the least opportunity. This fund will give ten $5,000 grants, one per month, to deserving organizations throughout the 2015-2016 school year. Over the course of the year we will aim for geographic, ethnic and economic diversity for funded organizations.
