Taking Steps to Slow the Spread of COVID-19

Oregon Community Foundation has been closely monitoring the recommendations of leading health organizations in response to the developing coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

As community supporters, we believe our primary role and responsibility is to ensure community members are cared for during this time of uncertainty. We are taking steps to limit the spread of disease in our physical spaces and directing support to nonprofits impacted by the outbreak.

We are doing our part to help slow the spread of the coronavirus to reduce the risk to our more vulnerable populations. OCF is fully prepared to continue to serve, support, and advise our donors and provide grant support to our communities, even as it becomes necessary to limit staff presence within our physical office spaces. OCF staff will be working remotely for the next two weeks, with full access to information and technologies to continue to support your philanthropic needs.

Out of an abundance of caution, OCF staff will participate in all meetings via phone or video conference whenever feasible. If you have a meeting scheduled, we will be in touch to provide further detail.
