What is

The Oregon Trail Community Foundation...

The Oregon Trail Community Foundation (OTCF) is one of more than 1,600 community foundations around the world and we provide a way for people of all income levels to make a difference in this community. OTCF helps connect community leaders, businesses, residents, institutions, and programs to promote the mental, moral, intellectual well being of and encourage physical improvement for the inhabitants of Nebraska, and of Goshen and Platte Counties, Wyoming, and primarily of Scotts Bluff County.

Individuals, families, businesses and other nonprofits can establish permanent or temporary charitable funds at the Idaho Community Foundation to provide support for the causes and organizations they care about most. Community foundations are recognized by the IRS as tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofits, so gifts to community foundations are eligible for tax deductions.

The Idaho Community Foundation also offers grants to nonprofits, schools and other organizations and provides scholarships to students. Money for grants and scholarships comes from charitable funds established by donors.

Through our Grantmaking, and through our donor advised funds, we strive ...

  • To improve living and working conditions.

  • To provide for recreation. 

  • To promote and encourage the arts.

  •  To aid in the care and development of children.

  • To aid in the care of the sick, aged and helpless.

  • To promote health and the prevention of disease.

  • To promote scientific research for the alleviation of human suffering.
