WELCOME TO THE OREGON WHEAT FOUNDATION The Oregon Wheat Foundation was formed in 1980 by the Oregon Wheat Growers League leadership to raise funds for specific projects. The most popular projects of the Foundation are the Scholarship Program – providing higher education assistance to high school seniors of wheat producing families; Bushels for Betsy – farmers helping to feed Oregon’s hungry; and Future Leaders of Ag (FLAG) – sending a young delegate to Washington DC each year with the OWGL leadership team.
Two major fundraising events are held each year to benefit Foundation programs and projects:
OWF GOLF SCRAMBLE
The Oregon Wheat Foundation Golf Scramble is held each spring at the Pendleton Country Club. The 2017 Scramble is scheduled for Tuesday May 16th. Food, beverages and other expenses are generously provided to golfers through sponsorships.
Proceeds of the golf scramble benefit programs and projects of the OWF, including contributions to the Oregon Agriculture in the Classroom Foundation, the Oregon Century Farms and Ranches Program, and more.
OWF ANNUAL AUCTION AND WINE PULL
Businesses, organizations and individuals generously donate new items and services for the Silent and Oral Auction held during the final evening gala of the convention.
The Wine Pull is an additional ‘fun’draiser held in conjunction with the auctions. Wine donated by vineyards and wineries throughout Oregon and Washington is purchased by the bottle (sight unseen) by convention attendees. At the close of the silent auction, purchasers can ‘pull’ a random bottle of wine from the collection to see what they have purchased.
The Foundation is grateful to the many auction and wine pull contributors (donors and purchasers). Thank you!
Proceeds of the auction and wine pull benefit the OWF scholarship fund.
