Our PDX family is way too big to squeeze into a single evening. You need FIVE nights to capture all that awesomeness!

Each night was a whirlwind of smiles, tasty food, and huge novelty checks. For many grantmakers, this is the first time they really get a sense of the scale of their impact. As a generation of young people committed to change, Portland Metro students awarded $770,000 this year! We are so proud of everyone, especially those who practiced their public speaking in front of 150+ people each night.

Our final event was a special afternoon celebration for the Freshman Leadership and Inquiry students at Lincoln High School. Leaders from all thirteen groups were on deck to present their grants on behalf of their classes.
