To help the endowment fund, the Foundation partners with Oregon Community Foundation (OCF), one of the premier community foundations that administers permanent charitable funds established through first from individuals, families, business and other organizations. OCF currently administers more than 2,500 permanent funds with assets of approximately $2 billion. By leveraging OCF's stewardship and long-term investment program, our endowment fund will be maintained in perpetuity to provide a stable stream of income for the Foundation.
