The Meriwether Lewis Memorial Eisteddfod Foundation (MLMEF), an Oregon non-profit corporation, recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) public charity. MLMEF was organized to raise public awareness of Welsh heritage in North America, to celebrate Welsh-American culture and preserve its works and to foster and encourage art and creativity in the Welsh tradition.

MLMEF puts on the Left Coast Eisteddfod performing arts festival to introduce Welsh artistic traditions to communities in western North America and to provide a venue for artists from Wales and North America to collaborate, to educate and to present their work.

MLMEF will research, identify and preserve tangible remains of Welsh cultural heritage and create and provide educational materials on the history and contributions of Welsh emigrants, for the general public and educational institutions.
