About Harrington Family Foundation

The Harrington Family Foundation (HFF), over the course of the past decade, has raised more than $1.8M for Oregon students, led by former University of Oregon and NFL quarterback, Joey Harrington. Joey was born and raised in Portland, Oregon and feels a vital connection to the state that has provided him many opportunities. It is the place he and his wife, Emily, have chosen to grow their family post-NFL, and remain close to those who helped in his success. Joey recognizes leaders do not only exist on the athletic field, or in front of a television camera, and believes investing in dedicated Oregon college students ultimately invests in the good of Oregon.
