The deadline for the Nike Employee Grant Fund of The Oregon Community Foundation Spring/Summer 2013 cycle has been extended to June 21.
The Fund, which was established in 2010 and is administered in a unique partnership with The Oregon Community Foundation, supports:
- Projects that encourage physical activity in meaningful ways, especially those that create early positive experiences for children through physical education, sports and play.
- Projects that address community challenges through innovative community-based solutions.
The Nike Employee Grant Fund seeks to benefit communities where Nike employees live, work, and play in the greater Portland area (Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington, Yamhill, and Columbia counties in Oregon and Clark County in southwest Washington). $300,000 is available in this cycle.
The full set of guidelines and the application are available online at www.oregoncf.org/nike.
