Community Impact

Powering Change Through Giving

Caring for people is more than a core value. It’s practiced every day in communities across the country where our employees live and work. It’s how we make a real difference in the communities we call home.

The Standard Charitable Foundation

The Standard Charitable Foundation recently awarded grants totaling $150,000 to four nonprofits.

Micro Enterprise Services of Oregon — $50,000

De La Salle North Catholic High School — $50,000

Our multiyear pledge supports the construction of Portland’s De La Salle North Catholic High School. The school serves a racially diverse community of students who would otherwise lack access to a reliable college-preparatory education.

Youth Villages — $25,000

Approximately 300 Oregon youths age out of foster care each year without the skills, resources or support needed for living on their own. Our grant provides support for LifeSet, which helps them meet basic needs, maintain good mental health and achieve long-term goals.

The grant is the final in a five-year professorship in analytics in the business intelligence and analytics program at Portland State University.
