Eight different non-profits in Deschutes County received thousands in grants from the Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation. The Foundation has given away $11 million in the last fourteen years. Sarah Holtzclaw with Partnership to End Poverty says their nonprofit received one of the grants. “And they give to specific programs that the tribe has laid out it wants to give to. Mostly arts and education and helping low income people. And you can see that ion the eight different non-profits given this time.” Some of the agencies awarded the grants include the Boys and Girls Club of Central Oregon, the Bethlehem Inn, the Environmental Center, the Assistance League of Bend and Volunteers in Medicine.
