Siletz Tribe Donates nearly $427,000 to State, Local and County Charitable Organizations

In February, the Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund distributed nearly $427,000 to 28 state, county, and local organizations. These contributions will support cultural activities, education services, healthcare services, public safety organizations, and historic preservation activities.

Since 2001, the Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund has made quarterly donations to nonprofit groups in the Siletz community, Lincoln County, and the state of Oregon. To date, the Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund has donated more than $21.9 million to charitable organizations.

The positive impact of these partnerships continues to resonate throughout the heart of Oregon and Native American communities. The Siletz Tribe is committed to continuing the tradition of giving back and is proud to play a part in supporting and uplifting our community.

For example, last year, the Fund provided two grants to the Arc Achievement Program of Lincoln County. One grant allowed seven people living with intellectual and developmental disabilities to attend day support programs at no cost. Read more about this partnership in the Lincoln County Leader.
