City Club of Eugene: Community Effort for the Common Good

  • UO Baker Center 975 High St. Eugene, OR 97401 (map)

Join the City Club of Eugene for “Community Effort for the Common Good.”

Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) puts donated money to work in Oregon, awarding more than $100 million in grants and scholarships annually, from more than 2,000 charitable funds. For nearly 45 years, OCF grant making, research, advocacy, and community-advised solutions have helped individuals, families, businesses, and organizations create charitable funds to improve lives for all Oregonians. Impactful giving—time, talent, and resources from many generous Oregonians—can create measurable change.

OCF believes the future of Oregon’s children is dependent on the well-being of families and communities. Max Williams will share stories of donors, community leaders, and nonprofit organizations addressing a range of challenges that are exacerbating the widening socioeconomic disparity among Oregon’s families. Philanthropy, while not a panacea, is an intentional way to make connections and catalyze community effort for common good. Oregonians can invest their dollars in local communities and give them resources to solve problems and improve lives. Charitable giving can translate into lasting investment that builds stronger, more resilient communities.
