Women's Foundation of Oregon
A Legacy of Women Helping Women
Women’s Foundation of Oregon has its roots in two private foundations led by women committed to using their resources to address challenges faced by other women. Founded by Portland women in 1887 and in 1924 to provide services to other women, the two foundations donated well over $4 million to agencies in the area and helped change countless women’s lives.
Inspired by the Past, Building the Future
We recognize membership in the originating foundations through our Legacy Circle. Women’s Foundation of Oregon welcomes your support as we build the future to secure opportunities and achievement for women throughout Oregon!
