Our mission is to empower a social generation to activate generosity one dollar at a time.
Dollar For Portland is a not-for-profit charity whose purpose is to help people with their financial needs that are suffering from medical ailments. The idea of Dollar For Portland is simple and everyone can participate. Once a month a local non-profit will nominate a deserving family or individual who is suffering from a medical crisis and cannot meet their financial needs. Dollar For Portland will then publicize the need to the local community through social media and ask for just one dollar from each person. With 2.2 million people living in the Portland Metro area the results of just 1% of people giving could be enormous. What makes Dollar For Portland so unique is that 100% of every dollar given by the community will go directly to the family or individual in need.
