About Us

The Crook County Foundation brings people, resources, and inspiration together for the enrichment of our community.

Crook County Foundation is a nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization building positive futures for our children, families, businesses and civic groups by fostering investment in leadership, education and the arts.

The Foundation provides college scholarships, and supports educational improvement, community leadership development, and arts and cultural opportunities. Investing endowment funds with the Oregon Community Foundation ensures philanthropic contributions will serve Crook County and its residents into perpetuity.

It was founded in 1998 by the City of Prineville, Crook County, Crook County School District, Crook County Parks and Recreation District, and Prineville-Crook County Chamber of Commerce. The board is comprised of representatives from each of the founding partners and community members at-large.
