The Marie Lamfrom Charitable Foundation (MLCF) was established in 1998 by a local Oregon family. Its purpose is to support local Oregon causes that honor the life of cherished family member, Marie Lamfrom. For decades, she gave to the people of our community through numerous volunteer efforts and community causes. She was a Girl Scout Troop Leader for over 35 years at Shriners Hospital (fondly known as “Bluebird”) and was very involved in the local YWCA.

The primary granting focus is to improve the lives of children, especially those most vulnerable. The Foundation accomplished this through funding arts & culture; education; and health & welfare. It also supports broad community causes that better the lives of those in our region.
