Earlier this year, Pride Foundation and Equity Foundation unified our philanthropic efforts under Pride Foundation’s regional network. This special gala will be a celebration of the impact Equity Foundation has had on Oregon and Southwest Washington.

We will be recognizing and honoring the leaders, groups, and organizations who have made the incredible progress our community has made possible.
