Community Impact Where it Matters
OCF is a strategic partner with Oregon communities. We bring people together and leverage research, grantmaking, loans and advocacy to address Oregon's opportunity gap. Together, we're delivering promising solutions for some of the state's most pressing challenges.
Each community in Oregon contributes unique assets and strengths to foster vitality. Oregonians are united in a common desire for strategic investments to deliver opportunity, in each region, where the needs are greatest.Learn More

We believe in an Oregon where everyone can grow, prosper and thrive.
Many children from low-income families, communities of color, and rural areas simply do not have the same possibilities–at home, in school, or in their communities–that other Oregonians do. The OCF board recognizes that to succeed with the foundation’s mission to improve the lives of all Oregonians, OCF must address these gaps in opportunity.
The adoption of the opportunity gap lens provides both an organizing framework for much of our existing work and a focus for new programs and initiatives moving forward. Our Strategic Plan outlines priorities to inspire giving, advance opportunity, engage communities to overcome these opportunity gaps.
OCF advances equity, diversity and inclusion to fulfill our mission
We embed these values in all facets of our work - from grant making and scholarships to partnerships, program development, donor engagement and advocacy.
