We attempt to support NPO's that cover a wide gamut of social justice, community and environmental needs. As such, we attempt to be a place where anyone can walk in and find an organization that is caring for a need that they feel passionate about. Our Charity List is often rotating and expands to as many as 10 at a time.
Currently, these are the charities that we are supporting:
Connects U.S Veterans as mentors and inner city youth together into the wild rivers of nature using fly fishing as a healing for both groups to becoming a guardian of nature, teacher or role model as an act of service into the outdoors. The hope is that it encourages youth participants to grow and become ambassadors of our natural environment.
An initiative of Embrace Oregon, they provide children entering foster care with a large box of new clothes, shoes and other comfort items to call their own. By mobilizing the community, we dream of a day when every child involved with DHS would have a safe, nurturing home to flourish. These boxes of new items help to instill dignity and meet tangible needs of Portland-area kids during a time of crisis.
Striving to break the cycle of poverty by reducing monthly utility bills for at-risk Oregon families by funding the installation of photovoltaic solar electric systems (solar panels) made by Oregonians on affordable housing projects developed by public and private entities throughout Oregon.
Taking a bite out of hunger! Many low income children in Portland rely on their federally-sponsored school lunch as their main meal of the day. Each Friday at Woodlawn, King and Harvey Scott Schools and at Tina Clegg Head Start, we send 237 schoolchildren home with two lunches for the weekend so they are fed and ready to learn on Monday.
Provides opportunities for youth in corrections to develop the personal and vocational skills they will need to become responsible, productive members of the community. The youth learn patience, compassion, and respect for all life through socializing, training, and re-homing shelter dogs.
Focused on delivering excellent, equitable education to underserved children, their families and their communities. Our mission is to eliminate the prolific racial achievement gap and cultivate confident, creative, compassionate, leaders who exceed expectations at each milestone ages 0 -10.
HOW CAN I GET MY CHARITY ON BOARD?
We accept applications for new charities all year long. Here’s how to apply:
Hold a Charity of the Day event! At this event, the Pub is yours. Whatever profit is earned in the Pub on that day is donated directly to your charity. Also, we encourage you to sell your own merchandise, hold a raffle, bring a band, whatever you’d like! We’re here to support you. A couple expectations:
- Can you get 300 people come to OPH throughout the entire day on a Monday?
- Are you willing to promote and advertise this event like crazy?
- Can you provide volunteers to help at OPH for your day?
- Can you set and meet a goal of $2500 in proceeds to reach the 10% donation?
- Can you meet with us to make a plan for success?
If you answered YES to all of these questions, we would love to partner together! For your event, we commit to
- Providing social media support about your day, and your charity throughout the week.
- We work with you to discuss what has made other NPO’s succesful (we’ve had almost $3,000 raised in a single day).
- Allow you to sell your merchandise in our space.
