The family was given three organizations to choose from
that represent the three Foundation’s areas of interest:
- ARTS: Oregon East Symphony
- ENVIRONMENT: The Freshwater Trust
SOCIAL SERVICES FOR YOUTH & CHILDREN: Olalla Center Relief Nursery, for more information: OARN
the family chose Olalla Center Relief Nursery to propose to the board
for a $5,000 family discretionary grant.
At the meeting on Saturday, the board made 15 solicited grants totaling $265,000 and
23 discretionary grants totaling $35,770. TOTAL ALL GRANTS made 8/20/22: $300,770
(Lamb Foundation has only given over $300,000 in grants in one other year since 1971)
Discretionary grants included directors and emeritus directors proposals, plus the $5,000 family discretionary proposal,
plus a $5,000 proposal selected by the attending youth and young adults to Oregon Environmental Council.
At the meeting we also introduced the new discretionary giving program
for all members of the Frank and Willie Lamb and Corwin and Louis Waldron families, ages 8-22.

After the meeting, we gathered on the beach for a Family volunteer beach clean-up event with one of our grantees, Sea Turtles Forever, www.seaturtlesforever.org It was very informative and a fun, hands-on activity on the beach. We removed toxic microplastics from an area of the beach near Haystack Rock, making the beach and ocean a little safer.
