Dear name:

Thank you for your recent donation to Columbia Foundation of --------- for the St Helens Skatepark project.  Your generosity is greatly appreciated.  In return for your contribution you have received no goods or services.

Diane C. Kem, formerly of Deer Island, Oregon, and the community of Columbia County established the Columbia Foundation in 1995.  The Foundationís purpose is to create and nurture an environment which values lifelong learning and building community relationships.

This year, Columbia Foundation was invited to help develop and build the St. Helens Skatepark.  We view this as an exciting project because the skateboarders themselves are directing it, and because it involves a variety of community organizations.  This approach of involving community members and a cross-section of community groups was critical to our success in building Columbia Center.  Partners involved in the skatepark project include the City of St. Helens, Named Catholic Church, the Columbia County Park and Recreation District, and several individuals.  The core leadership is coming from the skateboarders who have been instrumental in designing the skatepark, coordinating with City Council, speaking to community groups and planning the construction process.  The students have been great to work with and are learning a great deal about the political process, project planning and fund-raising.

Columbia Foundation is continuing to build learning opportunities in the areas of technology, leadership and organizational development, and operates with a countywide focus.  We are very interested in your feedback and ideas about future projects you believe the Foundation should undertake.

Columbia Foundation was granted non-profit status by the Internal Revenue Service on April 26, 1995, as a 501c(3) organization (EN ---------------).

We truly appreciate your contribution,

Columbia Foundation
