Oregon Community Foundation
The Foundationís Community Grants program supports projects that address one of the Foundationís four primary funding objectives: nurture children and strengthen families; enhance educational opportunities; increase cultural opportunities; and preserve and improve Oregonís livability through citizen involvement. The program awards some 200 grants annually, most to small- and moderate-sized nonprofits. The program supports nonprofits that engage their communities in solving local problems. Preference is given to programs that demonstrate a close fit with Foundation funding priorities, are preventive rather than remedial, and have community support both in terms of volunteers and dollars. Grant proposals range from modest short-term projects and specific, one-time capital expenses to extended projects that promise long-term benefits for the state.
