Our New Home
We are thrilled to share the story of our beautiful new home!
After 16 years of utilizing space in the south wing of the Condon Grade School, our community decided it was time for our own home. Over the course of 18 months of fundraising, including a $305,000 grant from the Ford Family Foundation and a $100,000 grant from the Oregon Community Foundation, we raised enough money to bring our dreams to reality and, on June 6, 2017, we broke ground on the site of our new building.
Our new, 4,000 square foot building is designed to meet the needs of children and families in our community with increased classroom and outdoor play spaces, a fully equipped kitchen and cafeteria, parking and drop-off areas which will facilitate the transition between home and school in a safe location, and a new and welcoming feeling for all of our community members.
Then finally, on May 17, 2018, we moved into our beautiful new home. We can't wait to show it to you!
Our Key Donors
Thanks to the generosity of our many donors, we raised over $800,000 to fund this exciting project. We thank each and every one of them!
The Ford Family Foundation is a private, non-profit foundation located in Roseburg, Oregon. The organization makes grants to public charities predominantly benefiting communities in rural Oregon and Siskiyou County, California. The Ford Family Foundation has supported other development projects in Condon, namely the capital project for the Gilliam County Library in 2013.
The Oregon Community Fund promotes philanthropy in the state by working with people, companies and organizations to create charitable funds.
In the spring of 2021, we received an $8,125 grant from a Gilliam County special projects grant to put in a new drainage system and redesign our playground. We purchased a new playground structure using money from the Early Learning Division and a 50/50 community raffle.
Our Garden Project
Using special projects grants from Gilliam County, we redesigned our Garden in the summer of 2021.
