Conferences and Networking Events
We host and provide resources for events that cover an array of topics important to community capacity building. These events are held in various venues across Oregon and Siskiyou County, including The Ford Family Foundation Conference Room in Roseburg.
The Ford Family Foundation is partnering with nonprofits to deliver a nationally acclaimed training: Darkness to Light’s Stewards of Children. It's a two-hour workshop designed to educate adults on how to prevent, recognize, and react to child sexual abuse. Offered at minimal or no cost.
Through the Visual Arts program, two-year residency programs provide opportunities for artists to explore and conceptualize new work.
The Visual Arts program also brings the Hallie Ford Fellows in the Visual Arts together annually for special convenings.
The Ford Family Foundation works to increase the number of rural students who are aware of, prepared for and enrolled in post-secondary education or training. We have partnered with Oregon GEAR UP, an organization, which helps students meet their educational goals.
Recipients of Ford Family scholarships receive much more than money. The Foundation works to develop a long-term relationship with such students. Conferences, special events and counseling are just some of the additional benefits that recipients receive.
