All children in Oregon deserve the opportunity to succeed regardless of their economic status, race, region or other circumstances of birth. Local people are best informed about needs, priorities and opportunities for the kids in their community. Local actions may be implemented more quickly and will complement national and state policy. OCF research, grantmaking and engagement will provide building blocks to address the opportunity gap when combined with volunteer capacity and community leadership and innovation. This is a volunteer-powered effort. OCF will provide appropriate support for GO Kids volunteers while also administering the project.
