The Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde is committed to honoring the tribal traditions of sharing and giving back to the community. In 1997, as an effort to uphold these traditions, the tribe formed the Spirit Mountain Community Fund, dedicating 6% of all casino revenue to non-profit organizations in an 11-county area of Western Oregon. Grants are awarded in the following categories: health care, education, arts & culture, environmental protection, historical preservation, public safety and problem gaming. To date, the Community Fund awarded $75,709,762 in grants to non-profit organizations in NW Oregon.
