"The sum of our parts is greater than what we can do individually."

-Max Williams, CEO, Oregon Community Foundation


Build a healthy, vibrant, and equitable Oregon through the active engagement of people from every part of the state and all walks of life. 


Engage Oregon's philanthropic community to lend their unique standing and collective capacities to collaborate with partners to effect critical statewide improvements. 


Foundations for a Better Oregon (FBO) was created in 2004 by a coalition of foundations united by a common purpose: a better state for all. Together, we believe that by sharing ideas, coordinating strategy, and leveraging joint resources, we can make an exceptional impact.
