"Full Contact Citizenship" Rewarded
Thank you to The Ford Family Foundation
for their recent 3 year, $300,000 grant award to High Desert Partnership for "community building".
Harney County is known as a place where people practice "full contact citizenship" and this grant award will enable High Desert Partnership to continue the powerful practice of collaboration. The Harney County brand of collaboration uses the voices and perspectives of those who live, work and play in Harney County and this funding will help us continue the work of finding meaningful and impactful solutions for the social, economic and ecological issues facing Harney County.
The Ford Family Foundation was established in 1957 by Kenneth W. and Hallie E. Ford. Its mission is “successful citizens and vital rural communities” in Oregon and Siskiyou County, California. The Foundation is located in Roseburg, Oregon, with a Scholarship office in Eugene.
