The shoe company and the Oregon Community Foundation have launched the new Nike Employee Grant Fund, a $1.5 million fund to benefit Portland area schools and nonprofits. The Fund is the Company’s “backyard” program. It engages employees in aiding nonprofits in communities where local Nike employees live: Clackamas, Columbia, Multnomah, Washington, and Yamhill counties in Oregon and Clark County in Washington. Funding priorities include the environment, education, inclusion, and health. Most grants will be awarded through the lens of sport, for projects that use sport or physical activity to leverage other community benefits. Some grants will be earmarked for projects that address broader family and children’s issues. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
