Jackie Chambers, from the Coquille Tribal Community Fund, speaks to a group of nonprofit leaders about grant opportunities at a Wild Rivers Connect luncheon in Brookings.


We know that grant funding is crucial for many nonprofit groups in Curry and Del Norte Counties. These are organizations that regularly have grant opportunities in our local area. If you know of other grant opportunities we can share with nonprofits, please  contact us.

The Coquille Tribal Community Fund

“The Coquille Indian Tribe established its Community Fund in order to share the proceeds of The Mill Casino • Hotel with organizations that benefit the residents of southwestern Oregon.  The fund seeks to strengthen the community by improving opportunities and lives throughout the region. The annual grant cycle starts with a letter of inquiry.  Letters for the 2017-2018 grant cycle must be submitted between Sept. 1 and Oct. 31.”

The Ford Family Foundation

“The Ford Family Foundation makes grants to public charities that predominantly benefit small communities in rural Oregon and Siskiyou County, Calif. Our mission can be achieved in part by directing grant resources to projects and programs which align with our grant guidelines. We respond to grant requests initiated by a non-profit organization through our online application. We occasionally use a Request for Proposal (RFP) to target grants for programs and projects that best support the Foundation’s goals. Our grants work at many levels — from emergency needs to systemic change.”

Wild Rivers Coast Alliance

“Wild Rivers Coast Alliance is a philanthropic organization associated with the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort. Our grant funding comes from the net proceeds from Bandon Preserve, a 13-hole par-3 golf course at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort.

Our focus is to fund community projects on the south coast of Oregon that are committed to triple-bottom-line results (conservation, community, and economy) and prioritize approaches that blend innovative ecological initiatives while driving economic opportunity.”
