During Greg Chaillé’s 24-year tenure as president of the Oregon Community Foundation (OCF), he grew its endowment to over $1.5 billion, making it the sixth largest community foundation in the nation. Under his watch, OCF took the lead on a number of initiatives, growing partnerships between communities, strengthening Oregon’s education system, reinforcing messages of unity and solidarity across broad geographies and cultural differences, and ensuring that giving back to their communities is a priority for an increasing number of Oregonians. He is a committed volunteer with a number of nonprofits, including SMART, OMSI, the Chalkboard Project, and Parkinson’s Resources of Oregon.
