Our Mission

Welcome to the Max Hartong Memorial Foundation, a tribute to an extraordinary individual whose legacy continues to inspire us. Our mission is to honor Max's determined spirit and inspire future generations to pursue their dreams both on and off the field.

Who was Max Hartong?

Max was more than just a lacrosse captain, a high achiever, and a passionate individual. He was a source of motivation, a leader, and a friend. Max's life was a testament to the power of living with intention, chasing dreams relentlessly, and making a positive impact on those around him.

Continuing the Legacy


Growing the Fund

We aspire to expand the foundation's fund to create a lasting impact on the lives of individuals in our community. Through generous contributions and support, we can make a difference.


Renewable Scholarships

Each year, the foundation provides scholarships to graduating seniors on the Jackson High School men's lacrosse team. These scholarships not only honor Max's passion for the sport but also contribute to the education and success of future generations.


Matching Donor Opportunity

To kickstart our journey, an anonymous donor has graciously committed to matching all donations dollar for dollar until the first of the year. Your contribution will have double the impact, helping us achieve our goals faster.
