Welcome to the AMFF website!

The Anna May Family Foundation was established in 1999 to support tax-exempt organizations in southern Oregon, whose programs enhance the well being of economically disadvantaged and vulnerable people, emphasizing children, women, elders and minorities.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help those most in need who are less able to help themselves. We are less concerned with making many grants than with making grants in response to the greatest need at any given time.

Primary Geographic Scope and Areas of Interest

Presently, the Anna May Family Foundation will make grants benefiting residents of Jackson County and targeting:

  • those who are subjects of abuse;
  • children who are at risk, emphasizing preschool education and recreational and cultural enrichment for youth;
  • those needing emergency services, emphasizing shelter, food and medications;
  • those who are economically disadvantaged and who are seeking employment and training


  • No grants will be made to individuals or to other foundations.
  • Grants for buildings, equipment and endowments will not be emphasized at this time.
  • The foundation does not make grants to support projects which have already been completed or grants for general operations.
  • The foundation avoids making more than one grant per year per organization

What's New?

  • The Board of Directors met on May 6, 2021, and awarded $100,000 to organizations. In addition, five continuing grants were renewed in July. In 2021, AMFF awarded a total of $130,000. Click here to view the 2021 Grant Summary.
