Resource Center

Resource Center

Rip City brings people together to create memories through the power of sports and entertainment. As such, our organization has an opportunity and responsibility to positively impact our community.  

 

In this unprecedented time, we have created this virtual Resource Center to connect community members to helpful resources in the greater Portland Area as well as some support available across Oregon and even virtually. We invite you to search below, send us additional resources to share, and support efforts to help members of our community who need us most. We are all in this together – after all, we are all part of Rip City. 

Are you looking for additional resources during this time? 

We have received information about the incredible resources being provided by many different agencies and individuals to support the community – everything from basic needs support to activities to do while you’re at home with your kids. Check out the resources below and sort by the category you’re seeking. This list will continue to be updated regularly, so come back to find more in the coming days and weeks. 

Would you like to donate to support community efforts? 

Nonprofit organizations need us now more than ever! If you’re able, please donate to your local 501c3 nonprofit organizations to support them and their clients through this uncertain time. If you’re not sure where to give, we have created a COVID-19 Relief Fund through the Trail Blazers Foundation to accept tax-deductible donations that will support the most immediate needs related to this crisis. Go to trailblazers.com/donate to contribute. 

Is your nonprofit seeking support?

The Nonprofit Association of Oregon is updating their site regularly with funding opportunities, workshops, and additional resources and they are offering them for free this month, so go to nonprofitoregon.org to access them.
