Ed Feeney Athletics Fund
Today, school budgets pay only for basics like uniforms and helmets. Portland’s high schools have hundreds of talented and enthusiastic athletes without the resources to participate. Many of these students don't even try out because they lack athletic clothing, footwear, or gear needed for practice.
The Ed Feeney Athletics Fund, created in honor of retired PPS teacher and coach Ed Feeney, removes barriers to participation in high school sports. When coaches, teachers, or school social workers learn of a student who lacks basic athletic gear, we can now purchase that gear for students.
If you’d like to support the Ed Feeney Athletics Fund, your donation will be matched. That means your $100 equals $200 in gear for PPS students. If we reach our full goal of $100,000, we plan to expand the program to middle school sports as well.
