Marin Athletic Foundation (MAF) was founded in 1984 by individuals concerned about the decrease in funding for athletic programs in the Marin County high schools. The organization and the community members who volunteer their time and efforts for the organization believe that athletics are a vital part of every high school experience and provide important educational and developmental outcomes for students. The organization believes that school districts need community support to keep athletic programs from being eliminated and to ensure that broad participation by all students in both interscholastic and intramural programs continue.
The organization’s new mission is to support Marin County’s athletic programs by focusing on the health, safety, and injury prevention of all student athletes. MAF is establishing new initiatives that will provide students, faculty, and staff with assistance and resources to create a safer athletic experience for everyone.
