In a released statement, Providence Health & Services acknowledged the profound impact racism has on health and announced its commitment to address these deep systematic injustices. As part of their response to become a more equitable and just organization, the Providence Portland Service Area Advisory Council seeks to fund community organizations that work with and alongside the Black community in the Portland Metro area.

Funding Details

  • Flexible funding opportunity for organizations that are led by and serve Black communities in Multnomah, Clackamas and/or Washington Counties. Service must be offered in the counties.
  • Funds can be used to support current programs that are difficult to fund or to expand or launch new programs.
  • Funds can be directed to meet any need, including administrative, for the applicant organizations.
  • Funds requested are capped at $50,000 per organization.
