Increasing access to education in local schools through outside movement, the foundation was formed in 2007 to provide complementary lessons to preK-12 youth.  As it grew, the foundation expanded educational opportunities for youth through college scholarships.  The foundation’s main out-of-school events are related to sports (basketball, golf, running) and maintaining actively health conscious lifestyles.  The foundation also promotes sound, healthy decision making.

Thank you for supporting the Craig Anderson Scholarship in Memory of Taylyr Cochran.  The OMIA Foundation is pleased to distribute thousands of dollars each year to student-athletes as they further their education and pursue their dreams.  The scholarships are funded through the Golf Outing each year and given in memory of both Craig and Taylyr.

Registration is super easy this year.  There are no forms to fill out or links to click.  Just send an email to Info@OMIAfoundation.org or call or text John at (774) 473-9663 with the names of your players.

Players and Teams… Start Raising Money!

Each team will receive a fundraising page, you know, like the hoops tournament in March or any 5K or marathon.  You run marathons, right?  Anyway, the main hub for raising funds is here at this link



Thanks for all your support in the past!  This year, our donation system is easier and better than even.  All sponsors now have a “Team Page” which means that you will receive recognition both for sponsoring a hole and a team (at no additional cost).  We recommend the standard $100 for this new “combo” sponsorship.  We wanted to give our donors more visibility so teams are now sponsored as well.  Your team page will be assigned to a foursome for the outing.  You will also receive a hole sponsor sign on the course.

If you would like to sponsor a hole/team again this year, please send email to Info@OMIAfoundation.org or call John at (774) 473-9663.
All donations process through the CrowdRise system and we get 100% of the donation.  CrowdRise helps us track donors better and you should know that this company, founded by actor Edward Norton, has supported the Lansing and Detroit areas.  You still receive a 100% tax write-off as the OMIA Foundation is a 501c3.  Or, if you want, you can mail a check to the OMIA Foundation; 6419 Beecher Rd, Flint MI 48532.  Your donation would then be entered manually to the site and you still get credit!  If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please don’t hesitate to email Info@OMIAfoundation.org or call John at (774) 473-9663.  We want to make your donation experience the best it can be.  Thanks again for supporting the scholarships in the Holt community.

Thank You!
