Grants of up to $10,000 to Oregon nonprofit organizations for capital projects that benefit the community in eligible regions. Funding may be used for renovations or to purchase furniture and equipment. Preference is given to projects that will have a significant impact on the community. Applicants must serve the residents of Josephine County and/or western Jackson County, which includes Applegate, Ruch, Gold Hill, and Rogue River.

Capital projects (tables, chairs, computers, ramps, building renovations, etc.) are eligible for funding. 

The Four Way Foundation prefers projects which:

  • Are non-recurring capital projects with significant community impact.
  • Would contribute to the cultural, economic, educational, or social betterment of our community.
  • Have “matching dollar” amounts, in-kind support, or a match from the organization.
  • Seek to provide needed facilities or services for which other funds are insufficient or unavailable, and for which the Foundation’s contribution would make a significant difference
