With more than 22,000 nonprofits serving the state of Oregon, one doesn’t need to look far to find extraordinary acts of service in our community. And for the enthusiastic volunteer, it’s often daunting to decide which organization would best benefit from your service. 

On April 23, Portland Monthly and Regence BlueCross BlueShield of Oregon will host Generocity, our first-ever FREE volunteer fair and cocktail party. The event will showcase 30+ local nonprofits making a difference in our community and around the world.

Admission is free and attendees are invited to connect with an organization whose mission inspires their passion.

Additionally, Ikea, La-Z-Boy, Perch Furniture, Roche Bobois, and Rejuvenation have all generously provided a chair as part of a Chair-ity Giveaway at the event. Guests can purchase raffle tickets from volunteers, and will be able to designate the specific nonprofit (present at the event) to benefit from their ticket price. At the end of the day, we’ll select five lucky winners for the Chair-ity Giveaway.

Featured nonprofits will host interactive booths, inviting attendees to learn more as they sip local brews and cocktails and enjoy photo booths, ring tosses, and guessing games.
