Oregon Tradeswomen, Inc. is pleased to announce a recent grant award from the Jim & Dianna Murphy Fund of The Oregon Community Foundation.
The $10,000 award is for programs that encourage girls and women to explore careers in transportation and trucking. The Jim & Dianna Murphy Fund makes charitable donations for the creation of or support of opportunities and programs that introduce individuals to vocational careers, with a preference for those related to the commercial trucking industry. Programs that focus on high school students, people who are being retrained for new careers and veterans are preferred.
The mission of The Oregon Community Foundation is to improve life in Oregon and promote effective philanthropy. It works with individuals, families, businesses and organizations to create charitable funds — more than 1,700 of them — that support the community causes they care about. These funds support the critical work that nonprofits are doing across Oregon. Through these funds, OCF annually awards more than $60 million in grants and scholarships.
