Oregon Humanities connects Oregonians to ideas that change lives and transform communities. Our vision is an Oregon that invites diverse perspectives, explores challenging questions, and strives for just communities.
Bottom Line for Portland
Last year, we partnered with 66 Portland organizations to engage 3,735 Portlanders in face-to-face conversations to build a more vibrant and inclusive community. We delivered the undertold stories in Oregon Humanities magazine to 4,707 Portland households, schools and businesses. We engaged more than twice that many people statewide.
Donors under 36 will receive a limited-edition journal from Portland design studio Fort Wick. New and increased gifts of $500 to $5,000 will be matched dollar for dollar by the Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund.
“As a facilitator, I’ve witnessed firsthand how Oregon Humanities’ programs open minds and hearts. These community conversations help people with different beliefs and backgrounds challenge assumptions and discuss issues that often divide us.” —Kerani Mitchell, business owner, Oregon Humanities facilitator and donor
