2021 Donor Appreciation Christmas Party

The Oregon Trail Community Foundation is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(C)(3) charitable organization and as such, donations to the Foundation are tax deductible. 

Elected Directors meet once every two months to review the financials, approve grants, review investments, etc. The Board of Directors appoints an “Executive Committee” who meets as needed to handle the day-to-day needs of the foundation.

Our membership includes numerous leaders in our communities. The integrity and personal successes of our donors give the Foundation its validity. To maintain public trust, foundations must have high standards of integrity, honesty and trustworthiness. Donors and their lawyers and accountants must be assured that the foundation will carry out their wishes and carefully preserve their contributions.

The Board of Directors hopes that you will consider becoming a “Friend of the Foundation.” It is the Board’s intention to use your donation for grant-making in the communities we serve.

A community foundation functions as a method for community members to leave money or assets for the betterment of their community.
