Become a Partner at a Deschutes Children’s Foundation Community Campus

Deschutes Children’s Foundation provides the space and support where nonprofits succeed at helping children and families. We envision a community where all children and families have the resources they need to thrive. 

An 860 square foot office space at 1029 NW 14th Street will be available starting July 1, 2020. The space features a large central room and two smaller offices. The smaller offices are currently structured for medical treatment, but tenant improvements and alterations are possible. Use fees are $624.75 per month for this space (equivalent commercial rent estimate is $1,100 per month). 

Located at Deschutes Children’s Foundation’s Rosie Bareis Community Campus in west Bend, partners include KIDS Center, CASA, Healthy Beginnings, Community Solutions, and the Deschutes Children’s Foundation administrative offices.

Nonprofit partners serving children and families receive many benefits from working at Deschutes Children’s Foundation. No-cost facility management, organized expense sharing, and a collaborative environment reduces partners’ operating expenses and improves the delivery of services to their clients. At Deschutes Children’s Foundation, partner programs receive classroom and office space at rates as low as 59% lower than comparable market rent. Monthly use fees help offset the cost of utilities and maintenance. 

Deschutes Children’s Foundation asks partners to promote our work, just as we enjoy sharing our partner’s success stories. Partners are asked to list Deschutes Children’s Foundation as a supporter on websites and marketing materials. Please also share success stories, how you’ve collaborated with other partners on our campuses, and how our partnership benefits your organization. 

We strive to create a complimentary balance of programs and services provided at each of our campuses. Deschutes Children’s Foundation considers the following when space becomes available: 

Program mission
Availability of facility space
Compatibility of available space and any special/specific program requirements
Potential for collaboration with other campus programs
Funding sources and financial stability of program
Potential presence of perpetrators/accused
Combination of direct/support services offered
Is the number of children and families served compatible with the campus? 

Submit a written proposal that addresses the following questions: 
How will your program collaborate with other partners/programs on campus?
How many people do you expect to serve at this site daily and per year?
How many of your staff will be located at this campus?
How many hours a day, days a week, and months a year will your program staff this site/be available to clients?
How are you funded? Please include financial statements in your application and proof of 501c3 status
What modifications and/or tenant improvements would you plan to make for this space? 

Applications are due by 5pm on Friday, April 17th.
