The Mt. Angel Community Foundation
The Mt. Angel Community Foundation is a community-based, not-for-profit organization that facilitates funding and development of projects of an enduring nature that serve, enhance and enrich the greater community of Mt. Angel, Oregon.
The Mt. Angel-based corporation Oktoberfest, Inc. established the Mt. Angel Community Foundation in 1995 to develop and fund long-lasting community projects beyond the scope of Mt. Angel's annual harvest festival. This vision led to the development of its first project, an endowed scholarship program for graduating seniors of Mt. Angel's John F. Kennedy High School. Currently the program provides five competitive scholarships each year. In addition to academic criteria, the awards consider citizenship, community service and involvement in local community and leadership activities.
The Foundation's Library Building Fund raised the monies to furnish and equip the City’s new Mount Angel Public Library. Exceeding its goal, the Fund now assists The Friends of Mount Angel Library with annual donations to improve the Library's collections, computer resources and facility.
The Foundation's Flower Basket Fund was created through a significant anonymous donation. Earnings from this fund are distributed to the Mt. Angel Chamber of Commerce to support its annual flower basket program.
The Foundation helped raise funds for the creation of Mount Angel's Glockenspiel, a picturesque focal point for our village. Funds now are used to maintain this unique feature.
Our latest project is to complete and furnish the Mt. Angel Community Festhalle, a new community building designed to serve as a multipurpose gathering and event space. Phase one construction is complete, and the building is open for event rentals by the public; we continue to raise funds to complete and furnish the upper level, meeting rooms and mezzanine of this valuable community resource.
