1000 Friends Of Oregon
1000 Friends of Oregon is working with Oregonians to enhance quality of life by building livable urban and rural communities, protecting family farms and forests, and conserving natural areas.
Oregon Humane Society
OHS is the largest humane society in the Northwest, and adopts more animals from its Portland shelter than any other single-facility shelter on the West Coast. OHS puts no time limits on how long animals remain at the shelter—a pet stays available for adoption for as long as needed to find a loving home. If a pet in the care of OHS needs medical attention, the OHS veterinary hospital provides the pet with same level of care you would want your own pet to receive. Founded in 1868 by noted humanitarian Thomas Lamb Eliot, OHS is the fourth-oldest humane society in the nation. Eliot initially established OHS to stop the neglect and abuse of draft animals. The mission expanded to include companion animals and, until 1933, orphaned children.
Friends Of Family Farmers
Friends of Family Farmers builds a strong and united voice for Oregon’s independent family farmers, food advocates, and concerned citizens who are working to foster the type of agriculture that respects the land, treats animals humanely, sustains local communities, and provides a viable livelihood for family farmers. Friends of Family Farmers is the voice for Oregon family farmers who responsibly steward their land and feed our communities. We promote sensible policies, programs, and regulations that protect and expand the ability of family farmers and ranchers to run successful land-based enterprises while providing safe and nutritious food for all Oregonians.
Wetlands Conservancy Inc
The Wetlands Conservancy is a leader in Oregon wetland conservation. Their mission is to partner with communities across the state in conserving, enhancing and restoring the physical and ecological values of Oregon’s greatest wetlands for current and future generations.
Oregon Food Bank Inc
In their work to eliminate hunger in Oregon, they believe they must address the root causes of hunger through public policy, nutrition and garden education, and public awareness. Oregon Food Bank focuses on freshness: By 2020, they expect to be distributing 15 million pounds of produce each year. They champion self-reliance through nutrition and garden education programs, as well as community food organizing activities to improve the health of communities. They also advocate for change through public policies and programs that address hunger at its root causes.
