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.
“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.”

Almost 60 organizations received more than $280,000 from the Coquille tribal Community Fund in 2022.
We think all our grantees are pretty special. Here’s a sampling of past grants that illustrates how Community Fund dollars work to improve our community.
