Pride Foundation is proud to support LGBTQ equality in Oregon. Building on our first Oregon grant awarded in 1991 supporting the development of LGBTQ-focused domestic violence services, we have been growing support for local Oregon organizations and scholars thanks to donors and volunteers.
As a donor-supported community foundation and a catalyst for change, we support transformative philanthropy, programs, and individuals in the Northwest that help people find joy and strength in who they are and where they are—in urban, rural, and remote communities.
