Healthy Environment: Solutions for People and Place 

Working with communities and supported by gifts from people like you, OCF supports solutions that benefit the air, lands, waters and people of Oregon.   

Across Oregon, we see that our environment and human well-being are connected. OCF believes that vibrant communities, a healthy natural environment, and a strong economy go hand in hand. If our air, lands, and waters are healthy, then both nature and people can thrive.  

With the support of donors, OCF’s has contributed $13- $14 million a year to environment-related programs. We work to bring together donors, partners, and communities to support the conservation and restoration of wild spaces and working lands, a secure water future, solutions to climate change, environmental education and connection, and greater resilience for the people and places of Oregon.
