Hello library-land,

The Oregon Community Foundation has a Library Innovation Fund they are currently seeking applicants for. You can apply for grants through the Community Grant Program linked  in the e-mail below. Attached is a list of awards given to libraries from 2013-2017 in case you need ideas. Oregon Community Foundation Program Officer Michael Achterman presented at OLA in April. The Foundation would like to see more libraries apply to this fund, so please consider this opportunity - Michael is happy to talk to any library interested in a potential project if you've got one for the next grant cycle of July 15th.  His contact information is below. This is an ongoing fund, so may also be good to consider for future reference.

Hi Greta,

Attached is a list of Community Grants we pulled for 2013-2017 related to libraries. This is what we currently have on hand-we need to do some more analysis for 2018/19 grants.

We've highlighted projects related to the Dolly Parton Imagination Library (DPIL) because the grantee isn't always affiliated with a library, "friends of" group, or library foundation.

These Community grants are made possible through a combination of discretionary dollars and donor advised funds. The "Library Innovation Fund" is used to support a variety of these projects/programs. Folks can't apply directly to the fund, but they can apply through our Community Grants Program<https://www.oregoncf.org/grants-scholarships/grants/community-grants>.

Hopefully this provides a good snapshot. Let me know if you have any additional questions.


Michael Achterman
