The Van Evera and Janet M. Bailey Fund

The Van Evera and Janet M. Bailey Fund was established at The Oregon Community Foundation in 1982 by a generous charitable gift from the Baileys. Half of their gift was dedicated “for the preservation and betterment of the art and science of architecture.”

Van Evera Bailey was a prominent Oregon architect in the mid-20th century. An innovator in design, site use, and the development and application of materials, he helped to create the "Northwest Regional Style" characterized by open floor plans and the use of natural woods and glass. The Bailey Fund is a legacy of his love for Oregon and his desire for built and natural environments to work together as distinguishing features of the state.
