Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $15,000 to Oregon nonprofits in eligible southwestern counties for abuse prevention, basic needs, education, health and community programs, with an emphasis on youth and family. Applicants must call program staff prior to applying and a letter of intent must be submitted in advance of the deadline date.

Funding is intended for organizations located in or serving the residents of Coos, Deschutes, Douglas, Jackson, Josephine, Klamath, and Lane Counties, as well as to local government bodies within Douglas County.

Focus areas include:

- Basic needs (i.e., food and emergency support);
- Abuse prevention and intervention for children and adults;
- Education - Early childhood education and parent education, vocational education and job training, after school programs, positive youth development, and arts education
- Health and wellness;
- Community support

Programs do not need to exclusively benefit Native Americans. In fact, the Foundation was created to provide grants for projects that benefit all members of the community, with a special emphasis on support for youth and family.

Estimated Size of Grant:

The Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation makes grants up to $15,000. The Foundation prefers to make small grants that will make a real impact on the project or for the sponsoring program.

Term of Contract:

The Foundation prefers to make grants on an annual basis.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Grants from the Foundation may be made to qualified non-profit tax-exempt charitable organizations in the above named seven counties and to local government bodies within Douglas County (in whose boundaries the Cow Creek Tribal Land is located).

Applicants must have received tax exempt status as stated in Section 501(C)3 of the Internal Revenue Code, or the equivalent for public entities. The use of another organization as a fiscal agent for a project is not acceptable.

The Foundation prefers not to be the sole source of support, or an on-going source of support for a project. Grants are not made to or for any of the following purposes:

- Individuals
- Projects of sectarian or religious organizations, or projects that benefit primarily members of religious organizations
- Projects seeking to influence elections or legislation
- Debt retirement or operational deficits
- General fund drives or annual appeals
- Organizations without a 501(C)3 tax status designation who are using another nonprofit organization as a fiscal or umbrella agent

Based on the beliefs and priorities of the Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation, and the reality of limited resources, the Foundation generally does not provide support for major capital projects (aside from emergency maintenance and repairs), capital equipment costs, sports programs, special events, and one-time programming. While operating funds are certainly considered, the Foundation generally does not provide funding for computers or other equipment considered basic to the costs of doing business (non-staff adaptive technology is considered).
