Since spring 2000, the Stephen M. O'Grady Foundation has donated over $228,000 in scholarships and donations to local youth groups. We have awarded 214 scholarships to Salem Little League, Babe Ruth and Boys & Girls Club alumni totaling $180,000 and donated over $40,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Salem. We also support various other youth charities related to our mission.


Mission Statement

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. Our non-profit tax ID # is 04-3551816.



The Stephen M. O'Grady Foundation is an all-volunteer organization raising funds through events supported by community members and local businesses. Our primary sources of donations are:


Spring Dance

Each year prior to Salem Little League opening day, the foundation hosts a spring dance including music, dancing and raffles.


Summer of Golf Tournament

The Steve O'Grady Open is held each August at Olde Salem Greens golf course in Salem. This popular and fun tournament is widely supported by local companies, and includes raffles and silent auction items. Each year, the Stephen M. O'Grady Scholarships are awarded to local youth at the luncheon following this event.


Steve's Team

As an additional fundraiser, Stephen's sister Beth and friends have run marathons as part of Steve's Team, raising over $55,000 since 2003, to benefit the Stephen M. O'Grady Foundation and the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Salem.


The success of our foundation is determined by your participation in our events and support of our mission. Thank you for joining with us to honor Stephen's memory by supporting Salem's outstanding youth.
