This year, one group completed the CommuniCare program during first semester! Twenty students from the IB Diploma program at Tualatin High School participated in CommuniCare and focused their grantmaking on nonprofits that support families experiencing food insecurity in the Portland Metro Area.

Through can collections with BottleDrop Give and a profit-share event at Chipotle, the group met their fundraising goal and granted a total of $15,820 to four nonprofit organizations and one in-school program. Nonprofit recipients included Adelante Mujeres, Farmers Market Fund, Tualatin School House Pantry, and Lift Urban Portland. Packed with Pride was selected as an in-school grant recipient.

We are incredibly proud of the passion, effort, and dedication the IB Diploma students brought to the CommuniCare program and the positive impact they made in their community. Congratulations, grantmakers!
