Metropolitan Medical Foundation of Oregon
Caring about the community

Mission

It is the mission of the Metropolitan Medical Foundation of Oregon to support activities which improve health education and the delivery of health care to the community.

History

The Metropolitan Medical Foundation of Oregon (MMFO) was founded in 1992. In the early years of MMFO, a number of grants were awarded in the area of child immunization. Over the years, MMFO has become quite diversified in its grant making, seeking to meet community needs that are consistent with its mission. In 2002, MMFO established a Mini-Grant program, which awards grants up to $500 to those developing small projects in addition to MMFO's regular grant making.

Since its inception in 1992, MMFO has awarded more than $129,000 for 84 community health projects. Grants are awarded for projects serving the Metropolitan region that includes Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington Counties and some parts of Clark County in SW Washington.
