The Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund distributed $388,745.90 to 30 organizations today as it continued its quarterly donations to nonprofit groups.

The Siletz Tribe has made contributions through employment, monetary donations and cooperative measures to the Siletz community, Lincoln County and the state of Oregon. The seven-member charitable fund advisory board has distributed more than $8.9 million since its inception in 2001.
