Your generous contribution will help support equitable futures in Greater Portland.

Since 2017, UWGP has convened individuals and organizations around Thrive2027, three 10-year goals to improve education, financial stability, and health for every person in Greater Portland. 

Although UWGP-funded programs currently serve an estimated 50% people of color in the Greater Portland area, UWGP has established the Racial Equity Fund as one step to more intentionally address disparities in education, financial stability, and health. 

To drive action and build on existing work to address inequities, the Racial Equity Fund will support the work of local nonprofits led by and serving people of color in our community, while advancing the work at the heart of the Thrive2027 initiative. 

Thank you to the following founding partners 


Your contribution to the Racial Equity Fund supports work addressing inequities in education, financial stability, and health.
