The Salmonberry Trail project recently added the Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) to its growing list of supporters and funders. The project has received a $50,000 Community Grant from OCF. The purpose of the grant is to help build organizational capacity in the non-profit Tillamook Forest Heritage Trust to help the Trust fulfill its role in leading the capital campaign for the project. The grant will help fund two part-time positions recently added to the Trust’s organization, a Development Director and a Strategic Planning and Marketing Coordinator.
The following specific OCF funds contributed to this grant:
- Ned and Sis Hayes Family Fund
- Robert and Hedy Snow Fund
- Doug and Katherine Story Green Family Fund
- William Swindells, Sr. Memorial Fund
In addition to this funding in the current fiscal year, the Trust has been invited to submit an application for an additional $25,000 in organizational capacity funds from the Oregon Community Foundation in the 2017 application cycle.
