Congratulations to our 2018 Grow recipients:
|Audubon Society of Portland
Audubon Society of Portland's mission is to inspire people from all walks of life to enjoy, understand, and protect native birds and wildlife and the natural environment upon which we all depend.
Grant will support the TALON (Teach, Advocate, Lead, Observe, Nurture) Program. Portland Audubon’s TALON job training program provides leadership, skills training, and paid apprenticeships in conservation fields to youth of color living in and around Portland. TALON builds leadership in the environmental community that reflects our region’s diversity.
|DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospital
DoveLewis is the Northwest’s only nonprofit, 24-hour emergency and ICU animal hospital. The mission of DoveLewis is to provide the best emergency and critical care for companion animals, to support the veterinary profession, and to support the animal-loving community.
Grant will revitalize the hospital’s comfort rooms which are used by clients who are experiencing the loss of a pet. Grant funds will purchase furniture and special equipment to aid the comfort of patients, clients, and staff.
|Make-A-Wish Foundation of Oregon
Make-A-Wish Oregon grants life-changing wishes to children with critical illnesses. For many wish kids, a wish serves as a catalyst to better health. It’s carefully planned and designed to complement a child's medical treatment, and give them the hope and strength they need to fight their illness.
Grant will fund backpacks given to each child in advance of their wish experience. Backpacks include a wish itinerary, supplies, branded buttons and t-shirts. For wish kids, the act of making their wish come true and providing personalized wish enhancements such as the backpack, can provide renewed energy and the emotional strength needed to fight a critical illness.
