OLSHF & Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation Partner for Student Success - 06/30/22

The Oregon Lions Sight & Hearing Foundation (OLSHF) is happy and proud to announce a continuing partnership with the Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation to provide the highest quality objective and safe vision screening for students in the Cow Creek Umpqua service area.

The Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation was founded in 1997 and on June 23, 2022 announced its most recent round of giving equaled $649,930 to 61 non-profits serving Coos, Deschutes, Douglas, Jackson, Josephine, Klamath and Lane Counties.

CCUIF’s funding includes continuing support for the Oregon Lions Sight & Hearing Foundation’s “20/20 Vision” School Vision Screening Program in the CCUIF’s service counties. During the 2021-2022 school year, OLSHF provided vision screening to almost 52,000 students in the seven county area.

OLSHF’s “20/20 Vision” School Vision Screening Program is recognized as the premier school based student vision screening program in the US. OLSHF uses current technology to safely and effectively screen students for 8 conditions that effect learning in a matter of seconds. Full classes of students are screened in less than 5 minutes, thus minimally impacting the learning day. Secure and encrypted reports are returned to the school in a week along with resources for underserved student families for low cost/no cost vision exams and eyeglasses.

The mission of the Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation is to offer assistance in youth education, strengthen youth and family, provide for positive youth development, and add to the quality of life for people in southwestern Oregon. 

To date, CCUIF has awarded $21,539,146 to non-profits in the seven southwestern Oregon counties from which it accepts grant requests. 

Carma Mornarich, the Executive Director of the CCUIF stated, in part: “I want to commend our partners in the nonprofit world for your work and tenacity.  It has made a huge difference in many, many lives.”

The Oregon Lions Sight & Hearing Foundation and the Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation are proud to have partnered in this important effort for years and both are happy to serve the diverse communities of Coos, Deschutes, Douglas, Jackson, Josephine, Klamath and Lane Counties. Both Foundations understand that the future of all of these communities lies in their youth.
