Fire relief fund

OCCU Foundation Fire Relief Fund

We established the OCCU Foundation Fire Relief Fund to support those affected by wildfires throughout Oregon. One hundred percent of the Fire Relief Fund will go to nonprofit partners dedicated to providing critical services that aid in the rebuilding and recovery process across the state.

You can help our neighbors and community members in need by giving generously to the OCCU Foundation Fire Relief Fund. OCCUF committed to match the first $100,000 donated to our relief fund

Thanks to our compassionate members, vendors and friends, we have met our donation match. OCCUF will continue to accept donations to the fire relief fund to meet response needs.

Together, we will meet this disaster with big-hearts, tenacity and through the generosity of people like you. All donations are tax-deductible.
