Our Mission

To perpetuate the memory and spirit of Stephen M. O’Grady by the encouragement and promotion of education and development of youth through voluntary grants, by scholarships or otherwise, to individuals, institutions and organizations.

The Stephen M. O'Grady Scholarship Foundation is an all volunteer non-profit organization founded to honor the life and work of Stephen O'Grady, Salem Little League Coach and Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Salem. Steve was tragically killed by a drunk driver in September 1999. It was less than a month after his 30th birthday.

Since the Stephen M. O'Grady Foundation was formed in Spring of 2000, we have donated over $240,000 to support local youth causes, including 226 scholarships totaling $192,000 to Salem Little League, Babe Ruth and Boys & Girls Club alumni. We also supported the Salem High School after prom events and donated over $50,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Salem. 
Our primary fundraisers are a spring dance and summer golf tournament. Thanks to your support, we will continue to assist Salem youth with their educational pursuits in Steve's memory for many years to come.
