"Ye? lan Lima" means "helping hand" in Chinuk Wawa.

Spirit Mountain Community Fund (SMCF) frequently celebrates the success and remarkable achievements of Oregon nonprofits. However, not often enough do individuals within these inspiring organizations receive the recognition they deserve.  A fundamental ingredient of successful organizations is the dedication, commitment, and unwavering effort of individuals.  We hope you will assist us in finding that one special “helping hand” person in your organization or community by sending us your nomination. Your nominee may be your co-worker, a peer, or someone you know that is affiliated with a partner nonprofit organization.
