At CareOregon, we believe that when we make one child or one family healthier, we all become stronger. It’s something we call the CareOregon Effect.
For more than two decades, the CareOregon Community Giving Program has worked to improve access to health care and other resources for both CareOregon members and non-members. In the past 10 years, we’ve contributed more than $10 million to increase access to food, housing, education and more.
CareOregon funds projects and programs that contribute to the health and resiliency of the communities we serve. Our giving efforts are centered on one goal—to improve health equity in our region by removing barriers to health.
Our Community Giving Program areas of focus include:
In 2020, CareOregon mobilized over $1.1 million in funding to support Portland area nonprofit organizations respond to COVID-19.
Additionally, we invested $455,000 to support the development or expansion programs using Traditional Health Workers in non-clinical settings. Participating organizations are using funds to support program development or staffing. All organizations serve culturally specific groups.
The CareOregon Community Giving Program also contributed $642,000 to local non-profit organizations in the form of event sponsorships and small grants through our Adaptive Fund.
