About the Foundation

The Three Rivers Foundation was established in October of 2011 to serve as the charitable giving arm of the Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua, and Siuslaw Indians and the Three Rivers Casino and Hotel.

The land and the people are interconnected and their fate is intertwined. The Three Rivers Foundation exists to improve, enrich, and enhance the health and welfare of the land and people of the historical homelands of the Coos, Lower Umpqua, and Siuslaw people. As a reflection of the true interconnectivity of the land and people, The Three Rivers Foundation will also entertain funding applications for projects that have a statewide impact as well as those that impact Native Americans in Oregon.

The Three Rivers Foundation’s is interested in innovative ideas, collaborative approaches, and grassroots efforts in the following areas; education, health, public safety, problem gambling, the arts, the environment, cultural activities, and historic preservation. In order to best respond to the needs of organizations and communities, the Three Rivers Foundation has taken a grant-making approach that is responsive in nature and therefore has elected to not put forward specific initiatives at this time.
