2011 Oregon Community Foundation

The Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) is committed to bringing fresh approaches to solving tough issues in Oregon communities. It improves lives and unites Oregonians as the leader in Oregon philanthropy, strengthening communities across the state.

In a community foundation, donors pool their funds under shared management. Each donor can tailor his or her gift to achieve their giving objective. By investing together, they can squeeze more good from every dollar. OCF is the sixth largest community foundation in the United States. From William Swindells’s initial $63,000 contribution, OCF today has upwards of $1.1 billion under management through 1,600 charitable funds, and provided $60 million in grants and scholarships in 2010.
