What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Our Mission The Oregon Cancer Foundation empowers, strengthens and sustains those impacted by cancer in our community through education, support and financial assistance. Please visit our website to learn more about us: oregoncancerfoundation.org

We are focused on strategically and sustainably expanding our programs to local cancer patients, caregivers, and families. Our strategies include: * Maintaining a dedicated staff and engaged board of directors committed to our mission. * Creating and maintaining strong, lasting partnerships with area businesses and partner organizations. * Engaging highly qualified and experienced facilitators to assist with program delivery and expansion. * Increasing our base of volunteers, donors and fundraisers in our community to ensure continued financial support for our programs. * Exploring new funding opportunities with continued focus on fulfilling our mission.

Our capabilities include: * Years of experience offering support groups, educational classes and financial assistance. * Strong partners in fields including: non-profit, nursing, psychology, social work, health care, hospice, physical health, communications & marketing, accounting, and more. * A strong and committed staff and board of directors.

We consistently collect and analyze data to evaluate and improve our programs. Including, but not limited to: Capacity - the number of clients served and the number of referrals. Quality - surveys to gauge usefulness, engagement and value. Utilization - the number of referrals, enrollment, attendance and attrition rates. Engagement - the number of community members engaged in volunteering, fundraising and attending events.

Oregon Cancer Foundation has strived to meet the needs of those impacted by cancer in our community for the last 13 years. Since re-organizing in 2013, we have made great strides organizationally and programmatically. The number of referrals for financial assistance has continued to increase each year and, due to strong community support, we have been able to accept 100% of eligible applicants. We have responded to the changing national (cancer) landscape by creating new programs and expanding existing offerings. In the Summer of 2018, we moved into a new, centrally located office space that has allowed for continued growth and expansion.
