Welcome to 12 Oaks Foundation
Matt 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.

|Our mission is to provide a resource that will help defray the cost of sports and community programs for children of families suffering financial hardship. Working with local organizations, the 12 Oaks Foundation will provide grants to families in need so their kids won't have to miss some of the best parts of childhood.
Funds will be awarded based on financial need, with special consideration given to children in families coping with cancer.

The Oak Tree
A mighty wind blew night and day.
It stole the oak tree's leaves away,
Then snapped its boughs and
pulled its bark
Until the oak was tired and stark.
But still the oak tree held its ground
While other trees fell all around.
The weary wind gave up and spoke,
- Johnny Ray Ryder Jr.
