Our Grantmaking

Past Grant Awards

The Women’s Foundation of Oregon has prioritized our Immediate Impact Fund to address both crisis response for the COVID-19 pandemic and/or the Wildfires and to support system change efforts that look toward our collective rebuilding and recovery. 

Our grantmaking model is rooted in relationships and begins with intentional outreach to those organizations and groups with a focus on gender-based services uplifting women, girls, and their families and communities, including trans* and non-binary / gender non-conforming communities, as well as those working on issues of gender oppression.

See below for information about the extraordinary services providers we have supported in the past.
