$5,000 Safeway Foundation Grant Received
Thursday August 2nd, SHCF Board Members accepted a $5,000 check from the Safeway Foundation at the Oregon Jamboree's kick off event!
For the last several years SHCF has benefitted from a $5,000 grant as part of the Oregon Jamborees' sponsorship from Safeway.
SHCF was originally created as the non-profit arm of SHEDG (Sweet Home Economic Development Group) which created the Oregon Jamboree. In early years, SHCF recieved 10% of the net proceeds from the Oregon Jamboree. With increased cost of entertainment, etc., the Oregon Jamboree has tried finding other ways to help support SHCF so this grant as well as a sponsored Artist Meet & Greet Auction has been appreciated. In 2017, SHCF was able to bring in over $7,000 in net proceeds from the Oregon Jamboree Meet & Greet Event which added to the annual $5,000 Safeway Foundation grant gave SHCF over $12,000 in support!
We appreciate all the support we can get and hope to continue working with the Oregon Jamboree & the Safeway Foundation in years to come.
