In July 2017, ARCS Oregon received its first bequest from charter member Mary Martin Rosenberg. The Chapter is a beneficiary of the Richard and Mary Rosenberg Fund of The Oregon Community Foundation. Each year there will be a distribution from the permanent fund, which over approximately three years, will fund a scholar award. ARCS Oregon is grateful for the generosity of the Rosenbergs.

Jill honored ARCS Oregon with a $1.5 million bequest to support its signature scholar awards program in perpetuity. This is the largest gift to date for the Oregon Chapter and significantly increases the Chapter's ability to sustain its mission at a new level. Jill's lifelong interest in science, and her philanthropic vision, matched perfectly with the mission of ARCS. Jill's generous bequest gives significant recognition to the important work of ARCS Oregon, and the members are honored.
