Our Story

Our Vision

Portland, Oregon is the craft brewing capital of America and supports an extensive, thriving pub culture. Portland also hosts more non-profit organizations per capita then any other city in America. Our vision is to leverage these two unique attributes of our city by creating a family-friendly pub environment where our neighbors from the surrounding area can come to enjoy community around good food and craft beer while supporting great causes. To integrate this vision of pub with benevolent outreach, we have established relationships with a number of non-profit organizations to which our pub donates all profits after operating expenses and contingency savings. When customers purchase their food and/or beverage they have a chance to vote for how our donation should be given from a list of local charities. We've simply positioned ourselves to be the "fundraising department" for these charitable organizations, by providing the community with great food and great beer in a warm, inviting environment.

Running our Pub in this way has allowed us to create over a dozen new jobs that pay industry-standard wages, provide advertizing and promote awareness for nearly 100 different NPO’s, donate thousands of dollars each month, and create a venue and place of community for new friends and neighbors to chip in and be a part of something truly world changing. This ground-breaking model for business is literally the first of its kind and we believe this could begin a new wave of business and mission that has the possibility of changing the way we work, spend, and care for our communities.

In addition, The Oregon Public House is a place where people in the community can learn more of these outstanding non-profit organizations and discover practical ways they can become involved in transforming our world and improving the lives of others. We see our Pub as a community center for change and action where others can come to not only enjoy great food and drink, and give a little to the charity of their choice, but also learn how to take action and start to "be the change they wish to see in the world".

The Oregon Public House is operated as a not-for-profit, donating its proceeds to nonprofit partners. OPH is not recognized by the IRS as a tax-exempt organization.

The Team

The Oregon Public House is a Public Benefit Nonprofit.  As such, there is no owner.  We are run by a Board that is made up entirely of volunteers who take no pay for acting in a board capacity.
