Thank you to everyone who joined us for Virtual Friend Raiser! On behalf of all our staff and board members, we want to thank you for stepping up for our youth and showing them that this community is here for them, no matter what! The power of relationships continues to transform lives because of you.

Join Us

For over two decades, Friends of the Children-Portland and our generous supporters have gathered under the "big tent" on the second Thursday in May to raise critical funds for the youth that we serve. While we will not be able to gather in person this year, we will still gather virtually. Together, we will rise above these unprecedented times to meet the overwhelming needs of our youth and their families.


We hope you will join us for a fun-filled virtual experience on May 14 when we recognize and celebrate how the Friends of the Children model is standing alongside youth during times of both stability and uncertainty.  Community is not cancelled, so let's (virtually) come together and support the youth who need it most!

If you are interested in partnering as a sponsor, please contact Kate Sacamano at


Virtual Friend Raiser is free! We are excited for EVERYONE to join us now that we are not limited to space under the “big tent”. Please consider making a general gift now, in lieu of purchasing a $250 ticket, to support our current emergency relief efforts. We look forward to seeing you on May 14.
