About The Bend Foundation

Investing in the community. 

The Bend Foundation, established and funded by Brooks Scanlon, Brooks Resources and its shareholders, was originally formed in 1947 as a resource for injured loggers and mill workers, and to provide scholarships of industry workers.

Following its mission to improve the lives of not only its employees but the residents of Bend, The Bend Foundation has grown to support social services, arts, culture and education in a thriving, growing and diversifying city.

Over the years, The Bend Foundation has performed as a leader in our community by identifying and supporting key needs in an effort to maintain and improve the livability in Bend and throughout Central Oregon.
