The Portland Interscholastic League (PIL) Hall of Fame, a non-profit organization, operates for the purpose of enriching the lives of Portland, Oregon, high school students through participation in competitive athletics.
The mission of the PIL Hall of Fame is to:
- Provide support for high school athletic programs. Through the years the PIL has sustained dramatic budget cuts, resulting in athletes paying a participation fee to offset the costs of athletic programs.
- Develop financial support to improve existing athletic facilities and support services so they are comparable to other 5A and 6A high schools in Oregon.
- Recognize a PIL Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year from each high school.
- Recognize excellence in athletics and academics by honoring coaches, individuals, and teams for accomplishments and contributions to the PIL.
The main objectives of the Portland Interscholastic League Hall of Fame are to honor the accomplishments of past athletes, coaches and administrators as well as to recognize the academic and athletic achievements of current athletes, coaches and administrators. Funds generated by the activities of the PIL Hall of Fame that are not used for annual operating expenses are then directed to the PIL athletic programs by the Board of Directors, and based on requests from the District’s Athletic Director. Funding may include funding for athletic trainers, participation fees, athletic equipment and supplies, as well as facility upgrades and maintenance.
It is the intent of the PIL Hall of Fame Board of Directors to use accomplishments of past PIL athletic programs to help support and strengthen current programs. Through a strong membership and sponsorship base, a highly competitive league can be sustained.
