Nike School Innovation Fund

The Nike School Innovation Fund's mission is to fuel excellence in education through the power of innovation. Since 2007, Nike has partnered with school leaders in Oregon to engage students and support teachers to help all students realize their potential. The fund aims to increase the number of students who graduate on time and prepare all students to succeed in high school and beyond.

Inspiring students to achieve

In 2015, Nike launched a statewide initiative to accelerate college and career readiness for all students in Oregon. Together with our partners, Nike supports teacher training, curriculum materials and leadership development in middle and high schools across the state. Schools and their districts commit time and resources to implement an elective class for first generation college-goers and train teachers in proven best practices for student success.

Innovating for school success

A unique partnership between Nike Leaders and local schools is at the heart of the Nike School Innovation Fund. Nike leaders are paired with select high schools and serve as business partners to help seed and implement school-based innovations.
