Latino Partnership Program Funding

Information for Grant Seekers and Collaborators

For the past decade, OCF's Latino Partnership Program (LPP) has  collaborated with Latino leaders and organizations around the state to engage with Oregon’s fastest-growing community.

Funding Opportunities

The LPP is not a stand-alone grant program. However, OCF does offer avenues for Latino-focused organizations to pursue funding.

Community Grant and Education Program Grants

Organizations advancing objectives in education, leadership development, community bridges and other areas are encouraged to apply for funds through our Community Grant and Education Programs or other funding opportunities as they are announced.

Southern Oregon LPP’s Small Grants

For organizations based in and serving residents of Jackson, Josephine, Klamath or Lake counties. Application deadline is September 15.

The Southern Oregon Latino Partnership Program supports projects and activities that support Latino leadership and leadership development, forge ties between Latino and non-Latino communities and individuals, and projects that benefit Latino youth and families, especially projects that address education challenges and gaps. Grants range from $1,000 to $5,000 each and are awarded annually each fall.

Information and Technical Assistance

The LPP offers information and assistance to Latino-run or Latino-focused organizations wishing to learn more about the interplay between LPP focus areas and OCF's overall work. The OCF staff is available to speak with organizations about their goals and how they might fit with the Foundation’s.

Building organizational capacity has been at the center of the LPP since its inception, especially for small and emerging organizations. Regional LPPs in the Northern Willamette Valley, Central Oregon and Southern Oregon provide and facilitate access to technical assistance and training opportunities. The programs also offer limited funds for consulting as well as for program grants to emerging organizations that do not have the capacity to seek competitive grants from OCF or other foundations.
