Who We Are
The Gorge Community Foundation is one of over 1,000 community foundations across the country dedicated to improving the quality of life in a particular region. The Gorge Community Foundation was established in 2000 by local residents active in working with Gorge nonprofit organizations.
Our Mission is to enhance the quality of life in the Columbia River Gorge by building permanent charitable endowments to help fund the long-term needs and opportunities in our communities. Our assets, which total over $3,000,000, represent almost sixty funds established by local families, individuals and organizations.
We offer different kinds of funds, structured to make it easy to give back to the community.
Our goal is to make your charitable giving as simple, flexible and effective as possible. From our funds, the foundation makes grants to nonprofit groups—over $450,000 in grants since 2003.
