We told you a few weeks ago that we’d have the final results of the 2013-14 campaign for you. So, true to our word, here they are: We raised $776,007, from 1,965 donors and 75 workplace giving partners, beating our goal of $775,000, and bringing the total raised since 2006 to $5.48 million!

One hundred and forty arts and business leaders convened at Portland Center Stage on Wednesday, July 30th to celebrate our eighth successful year.

The Season Finale was a special way to say thank you to those business leaders and other partners who make our work possible. The invitation-only event included special performances by Susannah Mars, Vin Shambry, Christopher Brown Trio, and The Circus Project.
