Oregon Immigrant and Refugee Funders Collaborative

The Oregon Immigrant and Refugee Funders Collaborative, a partnership between The Collins Foundation, Oregon Community Foundation, and Meyer Memorial Trust, establishes a coordinated and nimble funding approach to address emerging and urgent issues impacting immigrants and refugees across the state, and supports local organizations responding to these issues.

Immigrants and refugees make significant contributions to this state. According to an Oregon Center for Public Policy report released in 2016, undocumented Oregonians paid roughly $81 million in taxes to help fund schools and other public services that strengthen Oregon’s economy, through property taxes, personal income taxes, and sales and excise taxes.  Economic mobility and social inclusion for newcomers and their children builds communities that are stronger economically and more inclusive socially and culturally.
