Baker Family Foundation has grown and added the Josh Brown Youth Memorial Soccer Scholarship

Since 2021 the The Baker Family Foundation (BFF) has dedicated itself to giving back to the Portland community, so much so, BFF has established a new website dedicated to the cause.

The Baker Family Foundation was established in 2021 by Marc Baker, President of Elliott, Powell, Baden and baker Insurance and his wife Sherri Sacconaghi. The Baker Family Foundation is a 501c3 that works in conjunction with Elliott, Powell, Baden and Baker, Inc. Community donations and corporate sponsorship money donated to BFF are funneled directly to the local charitable organization  EPB&B so generously supports.

The success of BFF has grown rapidly allowing the foundation to give tens of thousands of dollars to local grassroots non profits on the Portland area community, and just recently BFF has added a new scholarship program that is very personal to the Baker family. On December 25h of 2023, Josh Brown, the nephew of Marc Baker died suddenly in a tragic car accident. The Baker family channeled their grief by honouring the man they so loved by creating the Josh Brown Youth Memorial Soccer Scholarship. .Those who had the privilege of knowing Josh know that he was man who had two great passions; playing soccer, and coaching kids in the sport he so loved. It is in his honor that his family created the Josh Brown Memorial Youth Scholarship fund. One Hundred percent of the money donated to the fund will be used to cover the cost of playing club soccer for two or more selected players annually and have a demonstrated passion for the game, who without financial assistance, would otherwise be unable to play their sport at the club level. The family appreciates any support that supports this mission in the name of Josh.

It is the generosity of the clients, professional partners and team at EPB&B , along with the support of the people in the Portland Community that allows The Baker Family Foundation to continue it’s mission of providing help and hope to those in our community and we thank you.
