BCF efforts in rural Benton County

This year, the Benton Community Foundation is working to strengthen our support of programs and services across rural Benton County, from Monroe, Alsea, and Alpine to Philomath, Blodgett, Summit, and all places in between. This fall, our team will be touring programs in those areas to learn more about current projects and how we can best support them. If your nonprofit is currently making an impact in rural Benton County and you want to participate, please let us know. We’d love to learn more about the work you’re doing and spread the word to our partners.

So far this year, BCF has provided more than $137,000 to nonprofits in rural Benton County, including the Alsea Food Bank, Coastal Range Food Bank, Strengthening Rural Families, and the South Benton Community Enhancement Association. We look forward to building on partnerships like these and listening to the concerns and challenges that affect all our neighbors.

Funding available for cultural projects

We’re excited to pass along a local funding opportunity for area nonprofits: The Benton County Cultural Coalition is currently accepting Letters of Intent from Benton County nonprofits involved in arts, culture, and heritage projects. Funding is provided by the Oregon Cultural Trust and must be spent in Benton County. Letters are due September 10. Please check the Coalition’s website for details.
Call for stories

If you’ve recently received BCF funding for a project or program, we want to hear more about the great work you’re doing across Benton County! Let us know how your project is going, who it’s helping, and where you’re headed. We’d love to share your stories with our partners, and spread the word about current nonprofit work in our region. Contact Steven for more information.
