OCF Giving Explorer

OCF Grants & Scholarships 2016

OCF awarded $108 million in grants and scholarships around Oregon in 2016. These grants are as varied as our state. Some are awarded through an open grant application process, while others reflect an advised fund donor's recommendation. But they all have a single goal: improving our community. OCF’s unique Giving Explorer allows users to see this philanthropy at work.

  • Next, click on the arrow to the right of the blue heading bar to browse a list of all grants and scholarships by organization.
