To assist in the social and economic development of Oregon’s low-income communities and to contribute to a broader understanding of ethnic and culturally diverse groups.
Bottom Line for Portland
BUF works to create equitable opportunities for marginalized Oregonians. We achieve this by awarding grants to small, education-focused nonprofits. Through our grant-making program, BUF has an indirect impact on over 2,000 people across the state of Oregon, in addition to directly impacting over 600 students through our education programs.
“BUF’s grantmaking application required us to take note of certain standards that prepared us to solicit funding from larger funders that we might not normally think of.”
—Antonio Jackson, Executive Director, Building Blocks 2 Success
