OSAA Foundation - Established in 2005
The OSAA and its member schools believe in the fundamental values associated with participation in high school activities and want to work together to ensure the future of high school activities in the state of Oregon. The establishment of the OSAA Foundation will help us realize our goal.
The major funding sources of the Foundation are through Endowment Games that member school participate in along with private donations from individuals and corporations.
The OSAA Foundation has three main programs it focuses on each year:
- The OSAA Foundation Participation Grant distributed $49,700 in total to East Linn Christian, Burns, Lowell, Gresham and Bonanza High Schools.
- On average the OSAA Foundation spends $45,000 each year to prepay for the ImPACT Testing Program. This program allows substantially discounted rates for the membership. In addition, the program provides resources with regional ATC's certified in the ImPACT program.
- In the first year of the Cross Country and Track & Field Fund, $4,546 in total was distributed to Alsea, Days Creek, Gresham, Milo Adventist and North Lake.
- Just over $30,000 was spent on the Student Assistant Program. In 2020-21 an estimated 87 schools and nearly 500 kids received assistance from the program.
- The newly established Equity and Diversity Grant distributed $8,000 to date to the member schools of Tualatin, Century, Bonanza and Lakeridge.
Overall the OSAA Foundation spent $107,789 in 2020-21. The OSAA Foundation had budgeted to double its expenditures in 2021-22.
