Five Central Oregon non-profits will split $30,000 in grant money from the Rosendin Foundation.
The Peaceful Presence Project is receiving $7,000. CASA of Central Oregon, Healing Reins Equine Assisted Services, Heart of Oregon Corps, MountainStar Family Relief Nursery will receive $5,000 each. Humane Society of the Ochocos will receive $3,000.
Central Oregon Daily News recently profiled The Peaceful Presence Project in Genevieve Reaume’s In Focus story on end-of-life doulas — caregivers who help people find peace with the circle of life.
“We recognize the importance of the non-profits and are filling the gap that, you know, unfortunately, government and life just isn’t able to do for a lot of people,” said Jolsna Thomas, President of the Rosendin Foundation.
Here is the full announcement:
The Rosendin Foundation
, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded to make a positive impact on communities through financial grants and volunteer work, celebrated its partnership with The Peaceful Presence Project
by presenting the community organization with a $7,000 grant. Alongside donations to nonprofits in Bend and Prineville, The Rosendin
Foundation is dedicated to providing financial assistance to community nonprofits in Oregon and around the country.
This grant will help the Bend nonprofit carry out its mission to reimagine and transform the way communities talk about, plan for, and experience the last stage of life.
Additional nonprofit organizations in the Central Oregon region receiving a grant from The Rosendin Foundation include:
