Businesses Step Up to Help Oregonians in the Wake of COVID-19
Businesses large and small—the lifeblood of Oregon—are rising to the occasion to support those impacted by COVID-19. We are so grateful that even in these trying times, so many businesses are able donate to toward COVID relief funds. With their support, OCF is fulfilling its most vital role: mobilizing and deploying resources where they are needed most.
Some organizations who have contributed to assist with recovery during this crisis include: Bank of America, Columbia Bank, Comcast, JP Morgan Chase, Key Bank, Lemelson Foundation, Nike, NW Natural, Oregon Growth Board/Business Oregon, Portland General Electric (PGE), The Standard Charitable Foundation, The Ford Family Foundation, Tillamook, Umpqua Bank, US Bank and Wells Fargo. Funding is provided in part by the Oregon State Lottery and administered by the Oregon Growth Board. See the entire list of Oregon businesses that have contributed using this link (the list is updated weekly).
There are also Oregon-based businesses that are selling items with a portion of the proceeds being directed to the funds. They include: Camping in collection (a 10 Barrel Brewing partnership with Cairn), Run On! T-shirt from Foot Traffic, MadeHere PDX is donating 10% of proceeds from all sales, Sean Bagshaw (photographer) is donating 25% of his video and TK panel sales and The Oregon Brewery Series is donating a portion of race proceeds from The Oregon Virtual Distance Challenge. Moonstruck Chocolate Co. and Hipster Wannabe also ran promotions for the fund that have ended. RFPIO Inc. has already raised $1,000 through gofundme and is matching up $2,000 in gifts. In addition, local businesses are matching employee donations for the fund, including Intel and Nike.
Thank you for your continued partnership as we work together to mobilize and deploy these resources to meet critical needs in our state.
