We fund education for Oregon youth in need.

The Rask Family Memorial Fund was founded in 1979 to honor the memory of Michael Paul Rask, who passed away at the age of 19. In lieu of such a devastating loss for our family, we sought to celebrate his memory by helping young Oregonians pursue their passion through education.
