Multifamily NW Foundation
Charity, Service & Empowerment
As the philanthropic body of Multifamily NW, we champion charitable organizations, create service opportunities, and promote educational programs supporting our community.
As the recently established philanthropic body of Multifamily NW, we are collectively dedicated to providing help and hope to individuals, groups and causes. Our mission aligns with efforts to champion charitable organizations, create service opportunities and promote education programs supporting our community.
For more than 25 years, Multifamily NW and its members have supported numerous charitable organizations and causes serving vulnerable populations and promoting professional development. In that spirit, the Association established the Multifamily NW Foundation in late 2020, a non-profit 501(c)3, governed by a dedicated board of directors.
2nd Annual Food Drive Supporting Innovative Housing Inc.
With funding for food pantries cut, low income residents are in need so we are once again partnering with Innovative Housing Inc. to collect food and donations to help feed residents during the holiday season. Last year, we raised over $8000 and provided Christmas dinners to 100 families in need, in addition to providing staples to the food pantry.
Innovative Housing, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides high-quality affordable housing to individuals and families, along with services to help our residents maintain their housing, access opportunities, and break the cycle of poverty.
Want to help? You can make a monetary donation here or firstname.lastname@example.org. Food donations can be dropped off at the MFNW offices in the collection bin. The food drive will run through November 2021 and all donations will be provided to IHI in December.
MFNW Announces 2021 Charity Programs
Sheds of Hope began as a recovery response from the Holiday Farm Fire that tore through parts of the Southern Willamette Valley in 2020. A Shed of Hope can be their first structure, reclaiming their property. It can be their first set of keys, a place to store their tools, or simply a shelter from the rain as they rebuild their lives. Sheds of Hope are a first step on the journey to rebuilding.
The Bybee Lakes Hope Center (BLHC) transforms the never-occupied, 155,000 square foot Wapato Corrections Facility into a trauma-informed, data-driven transitional housing facility to support Multnomah County community members experiencing homelessness.
Our Foundation is Driven by Donations
Will you help us?
In the spirit of working together to establish a formidable foundation of giving and support, we are kindly asking our members and other community leaders to help us in these efforts. With a solid base of donation dollars the Foundation can and will provide hope, security, and support to so many in need. Won’t you please consider joining our efforts with your support and contribution today?
What we build together is ultimately what we give together!
|REBUILDING TOGETHER NATIONAL DAY OF SERVICE|
For years Multifamily NW members have been one of the largest groups participating in the annual Rebuilding Together Day, the last Saturday in April. Rebuilding Together is a nation-wide nonprofit organization that provides critical home repairs, modifications, and improvements for low-income homeowners. They focus on assisting the elderly, people with disabilities, families with children, and veterans at no cost to those served. Multifamily NW volunteers have been especially appreciated as our Industry Supplier and Property Management members bring the skills and donated materials for the necessary carpentry, electrical, painting, plumbing, flooring, home safety modifications, debris removal, and yard clean-up that's requested. Multifamily NW volunteers share the goals of Rebuilding Together, helping low-income Portland homeowners remain in their safe, secure, and independent environment for years to come. Check out images below from previous Rebuilding Together Days of Service (2015-2019).
Previous Multifamily NW Foundation Projects
Multifamily NW Foundation Rounded 2020 with Three Successful Charity Projects!
|PROJECT CARE||ADOPT-A-FAMILY||HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE|
For many years, Project Care has provided gifts and needed goods for the White Shield Center. With the closing of the shelter this summer, the Service Committee has found two local charities to support this year! We’re very excited to partner with Boys and Girls Aid and Janus Youth Programs. Project Care will be providing holiday presents for the children living in Harry’s Mother Shelter, Transitional Living Shelter and Seneca House. Additional funds will be used to provide goods for the ongoing operations of the shelters including linens, towels, personal care items and more.
Project Care is an annual opportunity to give back to the community while creating special memories for the children we support.
