OREGON COMMUNITY FOUNDATION COMES THROUGH FOR ALPENFEST

Alpenmeister Chuck Anderson receives congratulatory certificate from Anne Stephens, Wallowa County representative on the Oregon Community Foundation's Eastern Oregon Leadership Council. Seated are Alpenfest board members Tom Powers, Mary Wolfe and Peter Brandt and volunteer Merla Clark. Also present were board member Lynn Wolfe and volunteers Joe and Rita Ehrler.
An Oregon Community Foundation grant of $5,000 to support Oregon's Alpenfest was made official at a meeting of the Alpenfest board of directors Tuesday, July 1.

Anne Stephens, representing the foundation, presented a certificate to Alpenfest and explained the foundation's focus and purposes. She encouraged Alpenfest to continue to apply for OCF grants and promised to be an advocate for more OCF grant funds to be directed to Alpenfest, Wallowa County and Eastern Oregon.

The OCF grant is the largest single grant ever received by Alpenfest, which became eligible for foundation support last year when it was granted 501(c)(3) status by the IRS. The determination made contributions to Alpenfest tax deductible.

The grant will be used primarily to pay performers and support marketing initiatives aimed at expanding the audience at Oregon's Alpenfest.
