Every voice counts and we want to hear yours!
Join us by voting on the proposal to restructure the organization with CCOF.

We realize the proposed restructure is complicated - in particular the legal requirement to sell the Oregon Tilth certification program to achieve the new structure. We have done our best to clarify the process, intent and outcomes. If you have questions please call 503.378.0690 or email us.


We want to be transparent and ensure you understand the proposal. The CCOF-Oregon Tilth restructure will result in three separate but linked entities to establish a single enterprise culture. This email highlights the benefits and structure of the CCOF Tilth Foundation entity, which will focus on educational programming and strategic partnerships. Aditional structure details of other entities will follow in future communications.

If you missed the last email about CCOF Tilth, Inc which will focus on advocacy, memberships, regional chapters, marketing of organic, strengthening our education agenda then please click here.
 

CCOF Tilth Foundation
  • Will continue and expand current educational programming and strategic partnerships
  • Will receive income from sale of Oregon Tilth certification program to support educational programs
  • Initial board will include 3 current Oregon Tilth Board members
  • Will remain incorporated in the State of Oregon and retain its existing Employer Identification Number and 501(c)(3) nonprofit designation
  • Base in Corvallis Oregon guarantees our powerful voice for organic in the Pacific Northwest
  • Ensures that prior bequest to Oregon Tilth will be preserved for educational purposes
