In our endeavor to fulfill our mission to bring people, resources and inspiration together for the enrichment of our community, the Crook County Foundation collaborates with many individuals, families, foundations, businesses and groups for the common good of Crook County.

What’s Brewing?  This educational community forum is held Wednesday’s October to May.  Stay informed on topics in our City, County and around the State – and sometimes we through in a topic that is just plain fun!  The coffee is hot and the admission is free thanks to the generous support of St. Charles Health System and Darrel Wisseman Edward Jones Financial Advisor.  Set your alarm and come hungry.  Ordering breakfast while you enjoy the presentation helps defray our costs, plus the food is delicious!

Paddy Pint Run puts a little fun into mix with a 1 mile and 5k run that’s starts with a cannon blast to launch the sea of green costumes into action. The fun run/walk starts at Good Bike Co., 284 NE Third Street and parades through downtown Prineville.  Optional pit stops for refreshments are provided along the route and the run ends at the Jameson’s After Party on Fourth Street between Beaver and Main where entertainment, awards, and refreshments are be served. Proceeds to benefit the Tooth Taxi and the Crook County Foundation.

Crook County On The Move is bringing people and organizations together to support making the healthy choice the easy and fun choice. Partnering with individual community leaders, along with representatives from business, industry, education, faith based, non-profits and governmental agencies to foster cross-sector collaboration in our community to build a sense of shared accountability to improve the overall wellbeing of our residents.

Prineville Economic Promotions began about 10 years ago when a group of Prineville business owners donated funds to the Foundation to make a positive impact on the quality of life in our community. Many improvements to public assets including the Fairgrounds, Bowman Museum, 4-H Clover Club, and Crook County Open Campus have been accomplished with PEP funds.
