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 from 49 community organizations based in Coos, Curry, Douglas, Lane and Jackson Counties gathered at the Mill Casino-Hotel for the 2018-2019 Community Fund awards luncheon.
“The Coquille Tribal Community Fund is dedicated to providing assistance to organizations that make lasting contributions to the communities we serve. We believe through this spirit of giving we allow our communities to grow and prosper.”
