About Us

Your Education Is Important to Us

The SPC. Mabry James Anders Memorial Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that focuses on enhancing the knowledge of the youth as well as the members of the military. To do this, we raise funds and offer scholarships to locals in our cherished city—Baker City, OR—in honor of SPC. Mabry James Anders.

The parents of Mabry spearheaded our scholarship and financial assistance programs. They started this good cause because they wanted to support the community in order to give back and thank the locals for their support for Mabry.


Our Proceeds

Because we are a 501(c)(3) organization, we are exempted from federal income tax. This means no percentage of the proceeds we get will go to paying taxes, enabling us to maximize all the money we collect to forward our charitable goals.
