Windermere Foundation Presents Funding to Portland YouthBuilders
The Donation will be Used to Provide Emergency Financial Assistance to Students
PORTLAND, Ore. – October 13, 2014 – Windermere Stellar recently presented a check at its Northwest Portland branch to Portland YouthBuilders, a nonprofit located in Southeast Portland that provides schooling and career training to low-income youth who have dropped out of high school.
The mission of Portland YouthBuilders is to support students in becoming self-sufficient, contributing members of the workforce and community through high school completion, vocational training and service. Low-income youth ages 17 – 24 who have dropped out of high school face multiple barriers to success, such as financial crisis. To help the students in times of need, Portland YouthBuilders runs an emergency assistance fund that provides assistance for childcare, rent, food or medical issues. The $500 Windermere Foundation donation will be directed to the emergency assistance fund.
Windermere has a long-standing tradition of assisting low-income children and families and giving to the community. In addition to helping Portland YouthBuilders, Windermere associates participate in annual community service projects and donate a portion of every commission to the Windermere Foundation – a nonprofit organization that has raised and donated more than $2 million to programs supporting low-income children and families in the Portland metro and north Oregon coast area.
