Make a Donation to Support COVID-19 Recovery

As we experience this pandemic, we are mindful of its disproportionate impact on communities of color, individuals who experience poverty, individuals who experience disabilities, individuals who experience homelessness, children, and other vulnerable populations. As we advance our mission, vision and values, our equity lens will guide and inform our response as a foundation to address this disproportionate impact.

Oregon Community Recovery Fund

Established in collaboration with partners throughout the state, the Oregon Community Recovery Fund is rapidly deploying resources to community-based organizations at the front lines of the Coronavirus outbreak. At this time, OCF is prioritizing funding to support organizations that are responding to the immediate needs of Oregon communities facing the most disproportionate health, social and economic impacts of this pandemic. These communities include:

  • Communities of color (Black, Latinx, Native American, Asian/Pacific Islander)
  • Rural communities
  • Other vulnerable communities

Oregon Small Business Stabilization Fund

OCF launched a philanthropic fund to support Oregon’s small business owners as they grapple with the realities of severely constricted economic activity during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Seeded with a $300,000 investment from OCF, the Oregon Small Business Stabilization Fund provides emergency capital to nonprofit community lenders in both urban and rural communities, increasing these lenders’ capacity to offer low-interest and no-interest loans and technical assistance to small businesses. Small businesses dealing with reduced sales and revenue can use the loans to continue to retain employees until economic activity picks up in a few months.
