Donations

The Willamette Resources and Educational Network, a nonprofit organization that leads field trips and community programs in the wetlands, received a $10,350 grant from The Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation in Roseburg. The network will use the grant to develop two new outreach programs for elementary and middle school students in the Eugene and Bethel school districts.

India Partners, an international, faith-based relief and development agency located in Eugene, recently received $12,500 from the International Foundation, based in Fairfield, N.J., and $20,000 from the Weyerhaeuser Family Foundation, based in St. Paul, Minn. The money will be used to start a school in India and to replace livestock and provide microloans to replant crops that were destroyed in the monsoon floods. The group also received a $25,000 matching grant from Lake Oswego-based Mission Increase Foundation, which will pay for a staff development position in the Eugene office.
