Pacific Power announces new grants focused on community enhancement and the environment 

Funding helps local community organizations working to strengthen livability 

on the northern Oregon Coast


ASTORIA, Ore. (Feb. 2, 2023)Every day, organizations on the northern Oregon Coast are putting their hearts into projects and programs to nurture our local communities and care for the environment. These efforts weave together to create a stronger, more resilient future for the region. 


The Pacific Power Foundation, a nonprofit arm of Pacific Power, is donating more than $164,000 in new grant funding across the three states it serves to support organizations committed to community enhancement and environmental respect. From improving access to affordable housing and workforce training to restoring watersheds and caring for neighborhood trees that bring environmental benefits to urban areas, this round of grants will underwrite a wide range of efforts that meet critical needs and improve local livability. 


“We are inspired by these organizations, in towns large and small, that are working hard to lift up people in their communities and take care of the environment,” said Alisa Dunlap, Pacific Power regional business manager. “It is an honor to support this indispensable work, while helping to boost the growth and vitality of the communities we serve.” 


This round of grants, focused on community enhancement and environmental respect, is one of the four grant cycles offered by the foundation annually.


The following grants totaling $7,500 were given to northern Oregon Coast organizations:


Sunset Park and Recreation Foundation to support childcare offerings by installing sensory paths in the recreation center to help young children learn their alphabet, numbers, shapes and colors through movement. 


Wildlife Center of the North Coast to help renovate facilities and attend to maintenance that was delayed by the COVID pandemic. 





About the Pacific Power Foundation:

2 million customers in six Western states as Rocky Mountain Power (Utah, Wyoming, and Idaho) and Pacific Power (Oregon, Washington, and California). The foundation’s mission, through charitable investments, is to support the growth and vitality of the communities served by Rocky Mountain Power and Pacific Power. Since it started in 1988, the PacifiCorp Foundation has awarded more than $60 million to nonprofit organizations. For more information, visit
