Welcome to 12 Oaks Foundation

Matt Hupp 7th GradeMatt Hupp was inspired by competitive excellence. His biggest competitor was himself. He gave all he had to every sport he ever played, and as a result was transformed into a strong leader with unrelenting courage and discipline. That’s how he inspired us.

That’s why we started the 12 Oaks Foundation. In memory of the son we lost at age 13, and in gratitude to the community that helped us through it all, 12 Oaks provides grants to families in need so that their kids won’t miss the chance to follow their dreams through the activities they love.

Every child should have the opportunity to participate in activities that build esteem and character. But sports and other activities cost money. And for families going through hard times, these expenses must often be cut from the family budget. We want to help those families.

Won’t you help us?


Thank you so much. I appreciate everything you have done. It really is so nice to know what great people are out there to help out in these difficult times. The next few months are going to be difficult as R. is having a bone marrow transplant soon. He was scheduled to have the transplant next week but a virus has delayed it. We pray everyday that all goes well and he can be back to playing in little league and with his travel baseball team again. Also, I have attached pictures of my children. S. is #6 in her Volleyball picture. Thank you so much for helping her and our family.
