With your continued and generous support, together we can…

  • Increase scholarship awards to keep up with the rising costs of college
  • Increase the amount of community grants awarded to fantastic nonprofit partners
  • Invest in the capacity building of our organization for greater community outreach
  • Provide new opportunities and confidence-building programs for youth

With your help, we awarded more than $110,000 in community grants to nonprofit organizations and an additional $120,000 in amazing student athletes with need to get to college.

During July, the annual MAC Annual Fund Drive is underway. This is the single largest source of funding for the foundation’s outreach.

The voluntary tax deductible contribution is an instrumental part of the community outreach. A tax acknowledgement will be available in early September at the end of the campaign.

Thank you for the support as we enable and inspire youth participation in athletics!
