Molly Cochran

Molly oversees the Oregon Historical Society’s Development Department. Since joining the OHS team in 2013, her responsibilities have included planned giving; fundraising for special exhibitions; and growing The 1898 Society, a group of high-level donors whose investment helps preserve and share history with the community. She loves working with OHS’ generous supporters and believes that creating access to history gives us a sense of belonging, bucks up our courage in difficult times, and fills us with an understanding of how we came to be who we are. Molly has a B.A. in women’s studies, and she loves being part of this community of lifelong learners. Prior to joining OHS, Molly was a fundraiser for several Portland nonprofits including the Portland Children’s Museum and Oregon Symphony.
