In April 2020, The Portland Sisters donated 6K to six local non-profits! We wanted to help now when the money is needed most. The Sisters decided to forego our regular grant process for 2020 and donate money directly and immediately to organizations helping our community. We solicited suggestions from our members, and have donated to these six amazing organizations who each received $1000 grants from the Portland Sisters! Please join us in celebrating these wonderful non-profit organizations and thanking them for all that they do!
1. SAGE Metro Portland
SAGE Metro Portland, a program of Friendly House neighborhood center, works to enhance the lives of older LGBT+ community members through education, advocacy, outreach and resource development.
2. Martha’s Pantry
Martha’s Pantry serves individuals and families from all walks of life, providing free groceries and household items to those in need.
3. Portland Animal Welfare League
The Portland Animal Welfare (PAW) Team saves lives, alleviates suffering, and keeps pets and people together by providing free veterinary care to the pets of people who are experiencing homelessness or extreme poverty.
4. PDX Artist Relief via their fiscal sponsor New Expressive Works
This emergency relief fund aims to meet the growing needs for independent/freelance artists in our tri-county area, in the face of COVID-19.
5. Outside In
Outside In provides critical medical and behavioral health services to adults and youth populations, and basic needs to youth experiencing homelessness.
6. SMYRC

During this time, the Portland Sisters want to send our love to you. Stay tuned for blessings and excitement from the Sisters!
