Giving starts in the Gorge
We believe that giving begins at home. And for us, “home” is the awe-inspiring Columbia River Gorge—an incredibly special place renowned for its natural beauty, diverse heritage, and, of course, the wonderful people who live and work here. With deep roots in our community, we can help you find organizations addressing the causes you care about. The Gorge Community Foundation provides donors with simple, flexible, and effective ways of making a difference in our home communities throughout the Columbia River Gorge.
Serving 6 counties:
Hood River, Wasco, Sherman, Gilliam in Oregon plus Skamania and Klickitat in Washington.
