The Foundation (HFF) holds three fundraisers each year to raise money for the Oregon Community Quarterback Scholarship. HFF partners with local organizations for the Safeway Foundation Battle at Bandon, an annual golf tournament; The Parr Lumber Great Summer Chef Off, a BBQ cook-off with select Portland chefs; and Huddle Up for Oregon Scholarship, a partnership with Safeway-Albertsons, which collects donations for low-income students to access higher education through scholarships and mentoring services.
All proceeds benefit the Oregon Community Quarterback Scholarship program, which each year awards four, four-year $4,000 scholarships ($16,000/student) to emerging Oregon high school student leaders in need. The Oregon Community Quarterback Scholarship program is designed to encourage students who have shown a take-charge ability in their communities, but may need help financial assistance reaching their potential at an Oregon university, college or trade school.
