Keynote Speaker 

The OASFAA Annual Conference Committee is thrilled to introduce Sonia Worcel, Chief Community Impact Officer of the Oregon Community Foundation, as our keynote speaker. Sonia joined OCF in 2010 and leads the team responsible for grantmaking, community engagement, advocacy and research aimed at expanding OCF's statewide impact. Her career has focused on the intersection between human services, research and evaluation, and public policy. She believes that change efforts are most effective when challenges and solutions are defined by communities and when philanthropy is one of many partners working in collaboration to improve lives for all Oregonians.

This year OASFAA will be supporting Family Promise of Lincoln County at the Annual Conference. Family Promise of Lincoln County (FPLC) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide shelter, meals and comprehensive assistance to homeless, low-income families with children in Lincoln County, while they seek to achieve sustainable independent living. This is achieved through a collaborative community effort and based off a proven successful national model that partners with local congregations and social service agencies to provide practical and effective services. To support this organization, OASFAA will be accepting donations at the conference. Using the links below, see what is requested from your sector!
