​​Get Involved
What does it take to get kids in the game? Your gift, your
action and your time! Here are some of the ways you can get involved:

As little as $300 gives a child an entire season of sports, providing much-needed consistency and mentorship when kids are most at risk. Monthly, quarterly, annual and one-time giving options allow you to donate in the way that best suits your budget.

Off the Sideline has occasional need for volunteers and interns. Contact us to see how you become involved.​​

Give at the Office
Talk to your employer about joining adidas​ and other organizations by sponsoring Off the Sideline with matching employee donations. 

Shop Online With Amazon Smile
When you choose us as your AmazonSmile giving choice, Amazon donates a percentage of your purchase to us. Visit AmazonSmile, select Off the Sideline as your nonprofit choice and start shopping. It’s that easy to help make a difference.​​

Support our Funders
We couldn’t make a difference in kids’ lives without our business and organizational partners. Let them know they make a difference.

Community Partners
Because we are committed to providing financial assistance where it is needed most we only fund scholarships to families directly served by our community partners. These organizations are carefully selected based on their work serving Oregon’s low-income youth and because of their support of Off the Sideline’s mission and goals.

Contact us if you are a community-based organization that serves low-income families and are interested in partnering opportunities. While we value and support private sports teams and clubs through our scholarship awards, we do not directly partner with these programs at this time.

At this time, scholarship funding is only available to families coming through our community partner referral process. We are unable to accept applications from the general public. Read about our community partners to learn if you are eligible for a scholarship. If you are affiliated with one of these organizations but unsure who to speak to about scholarship services, please contact us.

Thank you again for your support! Our 5th grade boys and girls both had amazing seasons. Your support allowed all these students to have a super valuable and meaningful basketball experience!
