The Blanche Fischer Foundation (BFF) is a 501 (c)(3) private non-profit foundation that provides direct grants to disabled or physically handicapped people in financial need. Applicants to this program must be permanent Oregon residents, physically handicapped, and demonstrate financial need; and the foundation must approve the purpose or expense that the grant money is going towards. The foundation is orientated to help individuals rather than organizations, but as in many situations, uses its discretion as the final determinant in each case.
