Regardless of the size of their herd or the location of their barn, every camelid
and every owner benefits from the research funded by the NWCF.

suri llamaFrom its beginning in 1987, the Foundation’s mission has grown into a concerted effort to support the camelid medial research at Oregon State University's College of Veterinary Medicine and to provide funds to maintain the herd of llamas and alpacas available to them. The NWCF is very proud to have played a role in the outstanding reputation OSU has obtained over the years for their camelid research and the valuable opportunity they provide for veterinary students to have hands-on education in that field. 

During the past 28 years, the Foundation has learned a lot about raising funds for medical research. They developed a Research Committee to:

  • evaluate the value of the proposals submitted annually
  • determine the priorities for financial support
  • monitor the research proposals’ progress
  • publish the results to the memberships of the organizations supporting the fundraising effort.
