FAN recently received a $25,000 grant from Safeway Albertsons Foundation’s Nourishing Neighbors Program which aims to help individuals in need connect to resources that will reduce hunger. The goal of Safeway Albertsons Foundation’s Nourishing Neighbors program is to ensure those who live in the communities served by Safeway and Albertsons have enough food to eat. “We’re grateful that Safeway Albertsons Foundation’s Nourishing Neighbors are partnering with us to help ensure Central Oregon children are well-fed and ready to thrive in their educational journeys,” said Julie N. Lyche.

FAN received a $15,000 grant from the Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation (CCUIF) to help children and their family members living in Deschutes County access crucial basic-needs resources, as part of the CCUIF’s most recent round of giving, which awarded 61 charities a total of $649,930. 22 FAN advocates serve 53 public school sites in Deschutes County, removing barriers for families who are low-income, living in poverty, or experiencing homelessness. “We’re honored to be among those selected this year to benefit from their partnership as our advocates connect many in need to vital resources,” said Julie N. Lyche, FAN Executive Director.

FAN received a $5,000 grant from Umpqua Bank Charitable Foundation to support FAN services in Deschutes County during their second round of 2022 grant funding. This financial support from Umpqua Bank Charitable Foundation comes at a vital time when many families are struggling with rising costs, such as gas prices. Umpqua Bank Charitable Foundation is dedicated to building healthier, more resilient, better connected, and inclusive communities throughout their communities.

FAN received a generous $25,000 grant from Marie Lamfrom Charitable Foundation to support services across Central Oregon. Founded in 1998, the Marie Lamfrom Charitable Foundation aims to alleviate human suffering and promote thriving communities in Oregon and Washington State. The priorities and mission of the Marie Lamfrom Foundation align with FAN’s vision of a community where children flourish and families thrive.
