About Us

Who We Are

Established in 1981, the Portage Athletic Foundation (PAF) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization guided by a united team of Board members, comprised of representation from Portage Central and Portage Northern High Schools and the Middle Schools. The PAF Board works cooperatively with an Advisory Committee, which includes the High School Athletic Directors and liaisons from the Portage Public School Administration and Board of Education.

What We Do

The Portage Athletic Foundation firmly believes in the importance of teamwork and the valuable, lifelong qualities that develop through participation in athletics. With the goal of enhancing athletics district-wide, PAF works collaboratively on fund-raising efforts within the community to provide significant financial support for our high school and middle school athletic programs. PAF strives to ensure equity as we allocate money evenly to the Athletic Directors at Portage Northern and Central High Schools and Central, West, and Northern Middle Schools.


The Portage Athletic Foundation is funded by community members who want be part of developing our students through teamwork and work ethic. Please be a part of our community and donate today.
