The nonprofit organization has had hundreds of donors, including one alum who matched donations of up to $10,000 through Dec. 31, 2020.

To contribute, and for more information about the Madison foundation and its projects, board and activities, visit madisonathleticfund.org, or contact Jim Sleeman, jimesleeman@gmail.com, 503-807-4819.


Madison High’s lower fields will have new turf for baseball, softball and soccer. The hope is that all can be playable by spring 2021, although the new school won’t open till fall 2021.
