Dollar for Portland is located in the beautiful green city of Portland Oregon. This is our hometown and we wanted to start here where we reside, our home-base and to make an impact here first in our own community before spreading our initiative across the United States. We are a non-profit organization that strives to inspire people to be generous by donating as little as $1 a month to help families with medical debt.
Once a month we partner with a local organization to help us identify a family in need. Once we have found a family that needs medical debt relief, we shoot a short video that tells their story. This video goes online and is pushed through social media with a goal to get people to give $1. If we all gave a small amount we can make a big impact in the lives of local families.
100% of every dollar given to Dollar For goes directly to the specific families in need. This has been our vision and desire from the moment we thought of this idea. To cover our expenses, we will depend and lean on our incredible donors, sponsors and charitable foundations. We want people to know that every dollar matters because 100% of every dollar will truly go to these families that are in medical debt.
