The Oregon Community Foundation Awards First Grants From Oracle Settlement

The Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) has announced $459,308 in grants to seven regional STEM Hubs (science, technology, engineering and math) that support the development or expansion of Career Connected Learning (CCL) focused on girls, low-income youth, youth of color and/or rural youth. The grants were made from the $10 million donation Oracle is making to OCF in 2017 and 2018 as part of its Cover Oregon settlement with the State of Oregon. In addition to expanded CCL programming, each of the seven grantees raised required matching funds from local industry, foundations or government grants.
