Join the Friends of Redmond Oregon (FORO) in raising funds in support of our Central Oregon Community. FORO is a 501 c-3 nonprofit which, until recently, raised funds through the Friends Bookshop. After over twenty-five years in operation, our bookshop will permanently close at the end of March 2021- another victim of Covid-19!
Previously, we used bookshop funds to support literacy, reading and art in our community. FORO also granted monies to other nonprofits, as well as elementary, middle and high schools in Redmond. Due to the loss of our bookshop, we no longer have the income stream from the sale of books. At present, we are only able to offer limited grants with our remaining funds. We are fundraising in order to continue fulfilling our commitment to help others in need in Redmond.
Some of the charities FORO supports are as follows: the Redmond Senior Center, Redmond High School, Opportunity Foundation, Sage Elementary School, Whoopsy Daisy Child Care and Pre-School, the Food Bank, Edwin Brown School, and St. Vincent de Paul.
