Newspapers Foundation (ONF) was incorporated in 1978 as
a tax-exempt organization to increase the scope of involvement with
journalism education and research. It assists with the development
of journalism and advertising education programs, provides financial
aid to students, and sponsors or funds continuing education programs
for Oregon journalists and journalism educators.
Make a Donation
If you'd like to make a donation to
the foundation, you may do so by mailing it to ONF, 7150 SW
Hampton St. STE 111, Portland, OR 97223. Upon receipt of your
donation, you will receive a letter of acknowledgment and
gratitude from the Executive Director of ONF.
The Oregon Newspapers Foundation also underwrites and operates
the following; the Better Newspaper Contest, Best Ad Ideas Contest,
Collegiate Newspaper Contest, Fall Advertising Conference, Spring
Sales Symposium, seminars and workshops. This is a huge undertaking
and one that does not come without a cost. In the past donations
to the foundation by the public and by Oregon Newspaper Publisher's
Association have helped alleviate some of this cost. It must be
pointed out that by the foundation underwriting these programs we
are able to keep the cost to a minimum for us all to participate.
