Investing in People
The Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund has been investing in people and helping improve communities for over 50 years. Founded in 1970, our private, grant-making foundation is committed to assisting organizations in achieving sustainability of programs and services through increasing their fundraising capacity. We are proud of our long history of supporting the good works of Oregonians with grants to community-based, preselected Oregon not-for-profit organizations with whom we have established relationships.
