Supporting diverse communities throughout Oregon

Your gifts also help the Capitol Foundation promote and partner with other nonprofits, heritage sites and other organizations to bring history to life. You are the reason for the success of these programs. Thank you for your support!

Willamette Heritage Center

The Oregon State Capitol Foundation helps sponsor “Zooming Back to History,” a fundraiser for the Willamette Heritage Center. This community history speaker series seeks to share historical perspectives of topics related to the Mid-Willamette Valley and beyond. Each speaker will talk about their topic for approximately 45 minutes with time for questions from the audience. Registration required.

Visit the Willamette Heritage Center’s website to learn more.

Oregon Historical Society

The Capitol Foundation was a “Votes for Women Activist” level sponsor of the “Nevertheless, They Persisted: Women’s Voting Rights and the 19th Amendment” original OHS exhibit.

We support the robust schedule of virtual programs offered by OHS, and were thrilled to partner with them on our educational page about woman suffrage, which was also made into a banner used in the House chamber to commemorate the anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 2020.

Gilbert House Children’s Museum

The Capitol Foundation continues to sponsor the annual “Why I Love Oregon” essay content, which the Gilbert House Children’s Museum is keeping alive for the community. Fourth graders in Oregon are eligible to participate each year.

Visit the Gilbert House Children’s Museum website to learn more.

Eugene History Pub Talk

The Foundation proudly supports the Eugene History Pub Talks in collaboration with the University of Oregon’s Department of History and Lane County History Museum. The History Pub Talks is a monthly event series and currently take place virtually.
