The Chambers Family Foundation is a private, non-profit foundation based in beautiful Eugene, Oregon. The foundation awards grants to residents and organizations throughout Oregon's Lane, Benton and Deschutes counties -- building stronger communities through the support of arts, education, medical, health, and human needs.
Learning the importance of giving back to the community from her parents, Carolyn Chambers established the Chambers Family Foundation in 1999. She was an astute businesswoman and a communications pioneer in the early days of cable television. In 1960, she was granted a license for KEZI-TV, the ABC television affiliate in Eugene, Oregon. She combined her business acumen with her love of Oregon and its people to create the Chambers Family Foundation.
The Chambers Family Foundation’s philanthropic works make a tremendous impact all across Oregon.
