Coquille Tribal Community Fund

Help for the Helpers

The Coquille Indian Tribe established its Community Fund in order to share the proceeds of The Mill Casino • Hotel with organizations that benefit the residents of southwestern Oregon.  The fund seeks to strengthen the community by improving opportunities and lives throughout the region.

Representatives of local community groups gathered for the 2020 awardees luncheon.
