“From our very first conversation, it was clear that The Reser Family Foundation is dedicated and intentional about investing in the well-being of rural communities. They asked the right questions, clearly understood what gaps needed to be filled, and provided us the support we needed to get the job done. Our people, rivers and landscapes are better off for it.”

Larz Stewart, Wallowa Resources, Development Director

“The Reser Family Foundation has been a dedicated financial partner in supporting RTWC in repairing and rehabilitating Washington County’s housing. Through their investment, we are able to rebuild the lives of some of our community’s most-vulnerable homeowners. We are fortunate to have found a partner in Reser.”

Danielle Schira, Rebuilding Together Washington County

Regina Ellis, Founder and CEO, Children’s Cancer Association
