Oregon Community Foundation

The Oregon Community Foundation is a statewide nonprofit organization that administers permanent charitable funds established through gifts and bequests from individuals, families, businesses and other organizations. Its assets exceed $1 billion, making it the largest charitable foundation in Oregon.

OCF was established in 1973 by community leaders who saw the need for a common investment and grant management vehicle for private charitable gifts.


OCF provides a variety of charitable fund and gift options to help Oregonians make a difference. We work with donors to develop their charitable goals and giving. Through this philanthropic giving, a wide variety of critical needs in our state are being met each year.

In 1998, the financial assets of the Oregon Trails Coordinating Council were transferred to OCF to establish the Oregon Historic Trails Fund, dedicated to projects related to Oregon historic trails as recognized by the state legislature in ORS 358.075.
