Our Team

We understand why people are rural by choice. Our hope is to make that choice easier. Let’s have a conversation about how we can help.

LOR was founded in 2007 on the simple premise that communities can find economic prosperity without sacrificing what they love about the place they call home.

To get there, LOR provides locals with the resources to tackle problems using solutions that fit the community’s character.

The rural West is beautiful and complex. LOR believes the best solutions are firmly rooted in the communities who understand this nuance and who only need the resources to make themselves stronger.

We are always looking to grow our network of organizations, funders and leaders at the local, regional and national level. Reach out to get involved in our work. Please note, LOR does not accept funding requests through the website.
