Big Red Athletic Foundation



Organized in 1980 by a group of dedicated Big Reds as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, donations to the foundation are tax deductible.

For many years, assistance came from the old "M" Club.  Formed in 1925, the "M" Club recognized all sports, but was especially active with the football program. By the 1970s, the club had faded from view and the Big Red Athletic Foundation was formed to fill the void.  Still run by volunteers, the organization is built to complement and supplement all the programs of the athletic department.  We work to meet the financial needs of Muskegon student athletes and the district's coaches across all sports.

Today, the foundation helps the athletic department support both boys and girls teams in 26 sports at three levels. Capital comes from fund raisers, and donations from people like you who see the value in supporting Muskegon High School and the kids that make up the school's athletic teams.

The Tradition of Giving within the district dates back to Charles Hackley, who donated the property upon which Hackley Stadium is built.  We work to keep that tradition alive.
