Philomath Community Foundation was established in 1998 by individuals who saw the need for a platform that enables charitable giving to benefit the Philomath community and surrounding area. Philomath Community Foundation endeavors to inspire and promote philanthropy and to help people make their philanthropic dreams for this community a reality. The Foundation is a  501(c)(3) non profit, so donations  are tax deductible.

The Foundation ​provides a flexible tax exempt way for donors with diverse philanthropic interests to make gifts benefiting the community, promotes private giving to charitable endowments for the public good, and carries out grant and gift-making programs that are visionary, inclusive and enhance the quality of life in the Philomath community. The Foundation is committed to serving the needs of youth and family; assisting the elderly; and fostering community service, including arts and economic development.


A great place to learn.

A great place to live.

A great place to leave your mark.
