Grant Opportunity Sponsored by Nike

on Thursday, June 05, 2014 Posted in School Partnership Network, Opportunities

Oregon and Southwest Washington nonprofits and schools are encouraged to seek funding through the Nike Employee Grant Fund (NEGF). The NEGF supports projects that encourage physical activity in meaningful ways, especially those that create early positive experiences for children through physical education, sports, and play. Since its launch in 2010, the fund has provided almost 200 grants totaling over $2 million to organizations and schools that contribute to making Oregon and Southwest Washington great places to live and work.

Nike employees work with the Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) to award these grants. The OCF works with individuals, families, businesses, and organizations to create charitable funds — more than 1,700 of them — that support the community causes they care about. These funds support the critical work that nonprofits are doing across Oregon. Through these funds, OCF annually awards more than $60 million in grants and scholarships.
