The Portland Clinic Foundation

Advancing community wellness


At The Portland Clinic, community wellness is at the heart of our work. While we have been keeping Portlanders well for almost 100 years, keeping greater Portland well often means going beyond medicine. The Portland Clinic Foundation was created to do just that. Donate now >


Our 2018 grant application period runs from February 21st to April 11.

Through evidence-informed, results-oriented philanthropy, The Portland Clinic Foundation supports nonprofits that improve community wellness and advance the social determinants of good health—whether through early-childhood education, environmental clean-up, racial equity advocacy, domestic violence prevention, or a groundbreaking local theater production.

The foundation gives unrestricted grants to nonprofit organizations working to fill greater Portland’s most urgent needs. In our first year, we gave $30,000 to a variety of organizations.

The Portland Clinic Foundation was created in 1963 after a grateful patient left The Portland Clinic a generous bequest. Quiet for decades, the Foundation was reawakened in 2015 to reflect the generosity of The Portland Clinic providers and patients. Now, the foundation is vital, thriving and growing, thanks to our expanding community of supporters and to the strong leadership of our board and staff.
