Edna E. Harrell Community Children's Fund

Supporting organizations and programs that improve the lives of underserved youth in Baker County and the North Powder area.

The Edna E. Harrell Community Children’s Fund of Oregon Community Foundation was established in 2014 to support programs for youth whose families do not have the financial resources for children's programs and activities. This fund should help broaden life experience for children by supporting programs that provide enrichment activities such as summer camps, after-school programs, arts programs, church programs, athletic programs, and activities provided by schools to residents of Baker County and North Powder. Proposals are reviewed by a committee and grants are awarded in the spring.
