Oregon Community Foundation by the numbers: Six remarkable statistics that prove the power of philanthropy

Since its founding in 1973, Oregon Community Foundation has transformed the generosity of its donors into maximum impact for Oregonians

Oregon Community Foundation by the numbers: Six remarkable statistics that prove the power of philanthropy

The COVID-19 pandemic and the 2020 wildfire season caused an urgent humanitarian crisis for unsheltered Oregonians.

Safe housing was in short supply, both for those needing to quarantine and those at risk of losing their homes due to wildfire. In response, the Oregon Legislature allocated $65 million to Project Turnkey to acquire hotels and motels and to transform those properties into temporary housing. They tapped Oregon Community Foundation to serve as fiduciary, and OCF worked closely with Oregon Housing and Community Services to administer the funds.
