Regional Foundations Grant $55,000

OCF logo 2Two of our region’s leading foundations recently joined our efforts for Planting Zen in Siskiyou Square with grants totaling $55,000. Unlike other grants we have received, these gifts support construction costs associated with our project.

Spirit Mountain logoOregon Community Foundation granted $35,000 toward completion of Phase 1, and Spirit Mountain Community Fund awarded $20,000 toward our Community Gardens and Workshop. We are grateful to these foundations for their support, and accept these grants with bows.

Both foundations were impressed with our environmental stewardship of Siskiyou Square, our strong emphasis on community-building, and our efforts to make our property usable by neighbors, students and the general public.

We have now received 14 grants totaling $787,662. You can review our updated list of donors and funders here.
