About the Foundation


The Roundhouse Foundation began in 2002 as a collaboration between Founder, Kathy Deggendorfer and her mother, Gert Boyle.   In 2014 Kathy's husband, Frank Deggendorfer and daughter Erin Borla were added as Trustees.

The original mission of the organization was to support and encourage creative thinking and help increase the viability of the arts as a large part of the Sisters and Central Oregon economy.   Over the years grants have been distributed over $1 million to over 100 different organizations in 4 major categories including the arts, social services, education and conservation throughout Central Oregon and beyond.
