TGT brings Thanksgiving to our residents every year.


Cash donations allow us to purchase exactly what we need when we need it. 

Every dollar directly benefits our residents in affordable housing. The easiest way to make a lasting difference is to sign up for recurring donations. Whether you choose to give every month or every year, anything and everything makes a difference. 

In 2016, The Giving Tree launched the Branches Program in three affordable housing properties in Portland. Throughout 2017, we would like to continue expanding Branches, providing art classes, cooking classes, and historic walking tours to more residents. For as little as $20, you can give a resident of affordable housing the chance to participate in one of our recreation programs.

  1. Food Gift Cards: For Fred Meyer, Safeway, Trader Joe’s, or Whole Foods to purchase healthy foods for community meals.

  2. Art supplies: Through focused art classes, open studio, and community activities, we provide tools and support to residents who are already artists and those who want to learn to express themselves creatively.

  3. Recreation Gift Cards: to Regal Cinemas. Watching a movie in the theater is a treat our residents cannot afford. We use these for group trips and as gifts to residents during the holidays.

  4. Office Supplies: We are looking for donations of sharpies, paper, stamps, holiday cards, and an office printer.

We are happy to have introduced the Adopt a Building Program. If you are looking to get involved with your community in a meaningful way, the Adopt a Building Program is the perfect way to give a guided donation for a single affordable housing building.

Each of the properties we serve are unique. The Adopt a Building Program allows you to get involved at a personal level with the residents that your contribution impacts. In addition to being recognized in the building for your sponsorship, you will have the chance to work hands on with the residents in activities planned by The Giving Tree. The program is built to help the community surrounding affordable housing grow and allow donors the opportunity to truly get involved.
