Grants to Oregon nonprofit organizations, government agencies, tribes, and public entities for projects to benefit state residents. Applicants must register in the grant portal prior to applying. Funding priorities include social and racial equity; arts and culture; child welfare and development; education; environmental protection; health equity; and a broad range of efforts to enhance community welfare.
The Collins Foundation seeks to be a diverse and inclusive organization and racial equity is a high priority in its grantmaking. The Foundation promotes inclusion for all communities that are systematically denied access to resources and the opportunity to make decisions on matters that affect them, particularly people of color, immigrants and refugees, people with disabilities, LGBTQ people, low-income individuals and families, and rural communities.
Given that the decision timeline for the Responsive Grantmaking program is approximately four months, and change and uncertainty continue to occur, the Foundation is particularly encouraging of requests for general operating support right now to maximize flexibility as organizations seek to adapt to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Estimated Total Program Funding:
Single and multi-year grants may be awarded. Two- or three-year grants are most often awarded for (1) well-defined projects that need an extended amount of time to become established and sustainable; and (2) large-scale capital projects. Multi-year awards are generally paid in declining amounts each year.
