Funding Philosphy Of The Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund

In keeping with our stated mission "To relieve the misfortune and promote the well being of mankind", we look for opportunities to promote the creation and enhancement of fund-raising capacity within institutions, organizations and agencies dedicated to serving community needs.

We look favorably upon organizations with board participation at all levels.

Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund has provided Oregon Food Bank a total of $250,000 in support of our School Pantry Program and Expansion. This generous support has allowed OFB to expand the School Pantry Program from 8-26 school pantries. In our last year alone, the support of the MCM Fund helped us provide nearly 1.5 million pounds of food, a 150% increase from the prior year, to over 143,000 children and their families. This is over 1.2 million meals to families in the Portland Metropolitan area and throughout Oregon.
