"Paying It Forward Program" gaining momentum Brick by Brick!

Almost $13,000 raised towards $20,000 annual goal by 21 donating families

Schools and number of donors represented so far (see wall below) :

Benson - 1, Cleveland - 3, Franklin - 1, Grant - 1, Lincoln - 2, Madison/McDaniel - 3, Marshall - 1, Wilson/Wells - 8

Represent your school and Support PIL Student Athletes today by donating to the PIL HOF "PAYING IT FORWARD PROGRAM" You can help for as little as $5/month.

Where do these donations go? The two programs below will be the primary beneficiaries:

  1. College Access - is a program that the PIL fundraises annually to assist students from PIL to find post high school sport opportunities. Priority is given to students of color or underprivileged youth who attend Franklin, Jefferson, McDaniel and Roosevelt. Students receive a range of services: self-marketing, college visitations, coach relationships and consultation, college application and financial aid, transportation to school and cost associated with registration and housing.
  2. Participation fees for PIL Youth Sport Program - PILYSP provide 5000 Middle School students with access to middle school sports. The purpose of the program is to increase the quality of girls' basketball, reduce migration to private schools, develop feeder programs to PIL high schools, and to install academic standards so they are prepared for high school athletics. The contribution will pay the participation fees for students who otherwise could not afford to participate. The cost is $200 per student or $65 for free and reduced lunch.

We will continue to use funds generated by the annual Mel Krause Memorial Golf Tournament to provide financial support and resources to PIL athletics at the request of PIL Athletic Director Marshall Haskins and his staff. This includes, but is not limited to helping offset participation fees, college access support, youth sport program, funding athletic trainers, providing athletic equipment and supplies, and helping with facilities upgrades and maintenance. These funds will also be used, if needed, to offset cost of the annual PIL HOF Induction Banquet.

Supporters have several levels of giving or “virtual brick” options:

  • Platinum at $25/month or $500 one-time
  • Gold at $20/month
  • Silver at $10/month
  • Bronze at $5/month
  • Also, a one-time gift in any amount to honor or memorialize a special person in your life is available.

Additionally, we offer Planned Giving options. You can designate a specific amount, a percentage of your estate, or the residue of your estate to the PIL HOF and still provide for your loved ones. Some examples include Bequests in your Will or Living Trust, Beneficiary Designation, Charitable Trusts, Retirement Plan Gifts, Life Insurance, Charitable Gift Annuities, or Stocks & Other Securities. Please consider speaking to your tax advisor and/or lawyer to determine which Planned Giving strategy is best for you.

Please see giving options, the updated wall and donors at Paying it Forward Wall

THE FIRST 25-30 PEOPLE TO DONATE TO THE PROGRAM WILL RECEIVE A PIL HOF GOLF HAT OR WORKOUT SHIRT WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. SO PLEASE HELP WITH A ONE-TIME DONATION OR A MONTHLY DONATION FOR AS LITTLE AS $5/month!

Hockey and PIL Greats Get Start in Portland!

(As shared by PIL HOF member Greg Hay - Madison 1976)

.... Not sure if you know that Tom Dodd (Last month's Member of the Month) and I were hockey teammates in our younger days. One of our teammates went on to be a pretty fair hockey player. Mark Messier is in the front row second from the right. My dad played on the Portland Buckaroos with Mark’s dad Doug Messier....
