About

The Santa Clara Community Foundation was started in 2021 as a very focused, nonprofit legal entity to foster community involvement and investment by organizing and funding projects that specifically benefit the residents of the Santa Clara neighborhood in the urban/rural area just north of Eugene, Oregon, and west of the Willamette River.

Our mission is to foster public-private partnerships with governments (like the city of Eugene, Lane County, and beyond), other nonprofits, local businesses, and individual entrepreneurs in projects that enhance livability, natural environment stewardship, affordability, and local economics in our neighborhood.

Please join us in our goals to achieve community resilience in the face of massive economic, environmental, and social pressures. We are a large neighborhood with many valuable assets, talents, and ideas. Together we can thrive as a community.
