Corporate Engagement

You are invited to join us in our mission to end generational poverty by becoming a Corporate Partner. We are committed to building strong relationships with you through a variety of engagement opportunities that align with your values, corporate culture, community service and business objectives.


Core Asset Partner

Our unique mentoring program focuses on identifying and developing nine core assets in our children so that they may thrive throughout their lives and achieve the goals they set for themselves. The Core Asset Partnership is a great opportunity for those who are looking for an individually tailored partnership that aligns with their company's mission and corporate social responsibility objectives.

$20,000 Partnership Includes:

•  Exclusive association with a Core Asset(s) of your choice for one year.
•  Customized, meaningful volunteer experience for you and your staff any time during the year.
•  Customized communication toolkit for cross-promoting partnership among all of our joint supporters.
•  Newsletter, annual report and social media promotion of our partnership.
•  Thank you ad in the Portland Business Journal.
•  Special feature on our website.
•  Your brand on a banner placed in our two facilities.

You can help us highlight these essential attributes by sponsoring a Core Asset for a full year. We are happy to discuss how your partnership benefits can be most meaningful to you and help you reach your philanthropic goals.
