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!

Secret Santa provided dozens of families in Crook County a Christmas surprise because of the generosity of Facebook and its suppliers who contribute to the Foundation’s Secret Santa fund. The project is designed to give Christmas to families who would never ask for nor expect to help, but through circumstances beyond their control are struggling during the holidays. Secret Santa is the spirit of Christmas in its purest sense.

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.

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.
