A political action committee (PAC) set up by Nike in support of a proposed initiative that seeks to repeal Oregon's 2004 gay marriage ban and legalize such unions in the state has reached its funding goal.

The Washington County-based company announced the creation of the Nike Equality PAC last month.

“We chose to set up the Nike Equality PAC so Nike had an avenue to support campaign efforts that are directly related to winning marriage equality in Oregon,” Nike spokeswoman Mary Remuzzi said in a written statement. “Also … it is important that our company's contribution only support efforts related to marriage equality versus other political issues or ballot measure campaigns, and we want to offer this option to our employees as well.”

Nike reported Friday that $100,000 of the PAC's funding came from the company itself and another $180,000 from Nike executives and employees.

A report filed with the Oregon Secretary of State's office shows founder Phil Knight and CEO Mark Parker each donated $10,000 to the fund.

Nike was also among the companies that supported passage of a marriage equality referendum last year in Washington state.
