MAX4Kids Foundation

MAX4Kids is a non-profit organization that was created in 2001 by MAX associates as a way to give back to our communities.

Committed to our communities

Who We Are

In 2001, a group of MAX associates created the MAX4Kids Foundation because they realized the power of working together to help local children and youth through direct donations to partner organizations.

Since then, the Foundation has given back more than $1.4 million to local children’s charities and to the MAX4Kids Scholarship Program through annual fundraisers and employee donations.

Scholarship Program

Since 2001, the MAX4Kids Scholarship Program has awarded over $560,000 to area high school seniors. In 2022, we awarded seven students with $5,000 scholarships each to support their higher education in Alabama. 

Students must have their own MAX account opened by November 1st prior to their graduating year. Scholarship applications will be available online by mid-September of each year.

Community Events

Annually, we host special events to raise funds for the Foundation.  Each spring, sportsmen and women come to the annual charity Clay Shoot at the Lower Wetumpka Shotgun Sports Club in Montgomery, Alabama.  This year, we are pleased to announce the 6th Annual MAX4Kids Clay Shoot will be held on Wednesday, April 19.

In the fall, we host the annual charity Golf Tournament at RTJ Capitol Hill in Prattville. Our 24th Annual Charity Golf Tournament will be held on October 18, 2023.  This is our biggest fundraiser of the year with proceeds going towards charitable organizations and scholarships for high school seniors in the areas we serve.  Go ahead and mark your calendars, additional information will be provided as we near the event.
