At Stafford Hills, we strongly encourage all our management, coaches and associates to generously donate their time and efforts to worthwhile community nonprofit organizations. The Club also dedicates a significant amount of time and resources to support such community organizations. Our support of some of these organizations is described below.
American Heart Association
Cardiovascular diseases and stroke are the #1 cause of death in Oregon. Stafford Hills shares the goal with the American Heart Association to build healthier lives free of such diseases and stroke through community awareness, better healthcare, enhanced education and expanded research. The Club supports numerous heart-awareness activities in February, National Heart Month, including Go Red for Women and the increased placement of AED devices in businesses and public places.

Special Olympics has become the largest global public health organization dedicated to serving people with intellectual disabilities. The Club and Therapeutic Associates participate in FUNfitness, a program developed by Special Olympics in partnership with the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA).

Each year the Foundation sponsors a competition among applicants who compete for internship and scholarship grants for higher education.

Rotary’s main objective is service – in the community, in the workplace, and around the globe. The 1.2 million Rotarians who make up more than 34,000 Rotary clubs in nearly every country in the world share a dedication to the ideal of Service Above Self.
