Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland Metro won a $14,000 Nike Employee Grant, a fund of the Oregon Community Foundation.

The grant will create sustained sports and fitness activities across the organization’s six club sites, including the Inukai Family Club in Hillsboro. The gift is dedicated to enhance efforts to engage youth in the development of lifelong healthy habits. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland Metro focus on providing affordable, high-quality after-school and summer programs available to all youth, especially those most in need.

Portland Club programs currently serve approximately 13,000 youth annually, charging a $5 a year membership fee and providing scholarships for any child in need. The Nike Employee Grant Fund supports projects that encourage physical activity in meaningful ways, especially those that create early positive experiences for children through physical education, sports and play.

Since its launch in 2010, the fund has provided almost 200 grants to organizations and schools.
