On February 25, Looking Glass received a $2,500 grant for its Rural Program from the Coquille Tribal Community Fund. The Rural Program, located in Cottage Grove, provides vital supportive services and emergency shelter to runaway and homeless youth, ages 11-17, in South Lane County.
Founded in 2001 by the Coquille Indian Tribe, the Tribal Community Fund has distributed more than $5.5 million to support projects in the areas of education, health, public safety, arts and culture, problem gaming treatment and historic preservation, in a five-county region of Southwestern Oregon. This year the Fund awarded grants totaling $400,000. The Fund reflects the commitment of the Coquille Indian Tribe to take a proactive, positive role in the community’s wellbeing. Supported by a percentage of revenue from The Mill Casino, the fund is managed and distributed by a board of community leaders and Tribal representatives.
