Cody Family Fund "Our involvement with the Community Foundation began when we asked for their assistance with the Ruth Jackson Cody (our sister-in-law) trust to provide school children with warm coats and shoes during cold winters. Our own Cody Family Fund continues that tradition and gives us a means of helping our neighbors, thus returning some of the good this community has given us."
The Gorge Community Foundation provides donors with simple, flexible and effective ways of making a difference in our home communities throughout the Columbia River Gorge. We believe that charity begins at home.
