Volunteer Expo

Find Your Way to Give and Give Back

The Standard’s Volunteer Expo is Oregon’s largest gathering of nonprofits, volunteers and donors. Every fall, the Expo brings people together with organizations in one place to discover volunteer service and donation opportunities. The free event helps members of our community discover opportunities that fit their skills and interests.

Volunteer Opportunities All Year Long

Don’t wait until the next expo to get involved. Opportunities to give back to the Portland-metro community are available year-round. Whether you're looking to volunteer once or long term, you can find the right match for your talents and interests.

Participating organizations represent the arts, culture, humanities, the environment, animal welfare, health, human services and more.

Make an Impact

The Volunteer Expo is a pillar of The Standard's Employee Giving Campaign. This year-round initiative encourages employees to donate to support schools and nonprofit organizations.

The Standard and our parent organization Meiji Yasuda double match employee contributions. In 2023, we raised more than $5.5 million for more than 2,562 organizations during the Employee Giving Campaign.
