We’re more than a foundation--we’re a community. We’re made up of our Board of Directors, Executive Director, Director of Community Outreach, Leadership Council, Consultants, and remarkable volunteers.
But we see ourselves as much more, and we want to include all of you who:
responded to our first solicitation in 2008 to become Founding Donors
welcomed us to the nonprofit world in Yamhill County and supported us through the years with advice and collegiality
have sent generous monetary donations (we regard every donation as generous) in the 14 years since our founding
donate art works, jewelry, wine, food, auction items, gift cards, and more
have named us as recipients of grants and corporate annual giving campaigns (Freelin-Wade, Cascade Steel, Yamhill County Association of Realtors, Hillside Foundation, McMinnville Area Community Foundation, and others)
help publicize us through print and social media
perform pro bono or reduced rate services for us (such as printing and copying, legal information, and website and graphic design)
serve as Community Partners to help identify and screen applications from clients who qualify for funding
cooperate with us to identify and assist local school children in need
You inspire us and keep us going. You live mostly in Yamhill County, but we also receive wonderful support from people living in other counties in Oregon as well as in other states, including California, Colorado, Hawaii, Iowa, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Massachusetts, Michigan, Maine, Montana, Texas, and Washington, and also in Japan.
We cannot thank you enough, and we hope you know how much your contributions matter.
Finally, the hundreds of people who receive our assistance each year are also part of our community. You display positive attitudes in the face of difficulties that could easily overwhelm. You have earned our affection and admiration (please see Testimonials on this website.)
If you’re just finding out about us, or if you wish to help in some way for the first time, please know that we welcome your participation. See Other ways to help on this website, or contact usand join our Give a Little community today.
