Established in 2002 by former NFL quarterback, Joey Harrington, the Harrington Family Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit, has raised more than $2M for students across Oregon. The Harrington Family Foundation cultivates the next generation of leaders in the state of Oregon by providing collegiate leadership-based scholarships, mentorship support, and an active community network.
Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, Joey believes investing in Oregon students dedicated to pursuing higher education ultimately invests in the state of Oregon, a community that’s afforded him so much. That’s why in early 2014 Joey announced a new scholarship-mentorship program, theOregon Community Leadership Scholarship.
The Oregon Community Leadership Scholarshipis a renewable four-year collegiate scholarship program eligible for current Oregon high school seniors who are emerging leaders, and plan to attend an Oregon trade school, college or university. The program is intended to facilitate the growth of promising leaders in the state of Oregon by developing the skills needed to flourish their local communities.
In addition to the scholarship, each recipient has a board of mentors available to them throughout and following their schooling to help guide their path to a successful career and future. By helping to open doors in the business sector, our hope is these emerging leaders will remain planted and invested in the state of Oregon.
