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 $1.5 million to local children’s charities and to the MAX4Kids Scholarship Program through annual fundraisers and employee donations. 

You Can Help

Together, we can do more good in the world because giving back is all about participation, not observation. Your donation to MAX4Kids Foundation makes our communities better places for our kids to live, learn, play, and grow.

Scholarship Program

Since 2001, the MAX4Kids Scholarship Program has awarded over $695,000 to area high school seniors. In 2023, we awarded 10 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 and in MAX branches in September 2024.
