About The
northwest berry foundation

The for-profit business, Peerbolt Incorporated, dba Peerbolt Crop Management (PCM), began business in 1994. It is owned and operated by Tom and Anna Peerbolt with headquarters in Portland, Oregon. Within a few years it grew to four full time people and four to six part-time seasonal field technicians.

The corporate structure offered no way to ensure continuity of the educational and charitable services that occur thought the year should the owners sell the business or retire. However, these could be housed within a nonprofit corporate structure, under the ownership and oversight of an appropriate board of directors. At the same time PCM could continue to maintain ownership and management of grower and industry in-field scouting and consulting services that are appropriate for a for-profit structure.

On October 9, 2015, the Northwest Berry Foundation (NWBF) received its 503(c)(3) non-profit designation from the IRS.
