Nonprofit Association of Oregon Helps 501(c)(3) Gear Up for Fourth Quarter

Nonprofit Association of Oregon Helps 501(c)(3) Gear Up for Fourth Quarter

Portland, OR. Nearly 20,000 charitable nonprofits across Oregon positively impact our communities every day, according to the Nonprofit Association of Oregon. Oregon ranks in the top half nationally in both volunteerism and average charitable contributions as a percentage of discretionary income at 4.6%. The power that individuals draw from giving to charity comes from a selfless act: it is often a deeply personal decision of the heart. That care of community, coupled with a hearty nonprofit sector in Oregon addressing a vast array of needs and missions, compels Oregonians to give and they give significantly. According to the 2015 Giving in Oregon report by the Oregon Community Foundation, more than $1.76 billion was donated by private individuals. The Foundation Center reported that for 2014, Oregon’s 878 foundations gave more than $371 million to nonprofit causes and projects.

Although charitable giving occurs throughout the year, the fourth quarter of each year is a critical fundraising time for nonprofits. As a result of the changes to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, Nonprofit Association of Oregon wants to ensure Oregon nonprofits are at the forefront of people’s minds during this giving season. 

While it is true that a charitable tax deduction is an incentive, it’s not the only reason Oregonians give. To showcase the fantastic work of Oregon’s nonprofits and to encourage Oregonians to give generously to support them, NAO created this short video –

The Nonprofit Association of Oregon wants to excite and remind Oregonians why it’s so important to give and support local nonprofits – whether it’s in La Grande, Prineville, Eugene, Coos Bay, Klamath Falls or in the Portland metro area. Leaders say, “Help us create a groundswell of support for our nonprofits by creating an online buzz and mobilize Oregonians to give to local nonprofits. Let’s remind our supporters how to Care Like An Oregonian!”

From The Nonprofit Association of Oregon:

Who we are

NAO’s vision is that Oregon’s nonprofits are visible and valued as essential contributors to society. We are deeply invested in our core values: Collaboration, Equity and Inclusion, Excellence, Impact, Learning, Service and Stewardship.

What we do

NAO ensures a future in which Oregon nonprofits are visible and valued as essential contributors to our society. We strive to connect, improve and advance all nonprofits to help build a thriving and vital Oregon.

NAO serves the needs of the nonprofit sector through our work in advocacy, convening, disseminating Principles and Practices for Nonprofit Excellence, capacity building and thought leadership.

Statewide membership

NAO offers two types of membership:

  • Nonprofit membership for 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations
  • Affiliate membership for businesses that offer services and products to nonprofit organizations; as well as other 501(c) nonprofits, government agencies, individuals, etc.

Membership with NAO offers charitable nonprofits access to resources; attend high quality and relevant professional and volunteer development events at significantly reduced rates; network and learn with other nonprofits; connect with businesses who support nonprofits through cost-savings services and products; and amplify your voice with decision makers.

Affiliate membership with NAO offers businesses, other entities and individuals who support the work of nonprofits to connect with and be part of NAO’s network. This may include businesses who provide products and services to the nonprofit sector, organizations who support nonprofits as part of their community engagement work, or individuals who volunteer in service to the nonprofit sector. Business Affiliate Members at the Verified Level have the opportunity to potentially partner with NAO to offer cost-savings products and services to nonprofits and be part of NAO’s Referral Service.

Additional workshops, webinars, and online resources ensure that nonprofits all over Oregon have access to these valuable resources and opportunities. Learn more.
  • Referral Service: When nonprofits seek consulting services to meet challenges, support their growth, build effectiveness, and achieve excellence – whether it is a consultant to facilitate a board retreat on diversity, equity and inclusion, an interim executive placement, executive search, or other projects – NAO can match a nonprofit to a vetted and proven expert consultant or service provider. Consultants and service providers must be NAO Business Verified Affiliate Members. Learn more.

  • Thought Leadership: NAO provides thought leadership at the overall nonprofit sector level about and for the nonprofit sector. We lead the effort to conduct, collate and share key research information about and for the nonprofit sector. We also ensure that Oregon’s nonprofits and the general public have relevant and timely information about changing ideas, opportunities and issues that affect nonprofits around the state.
  • Advocacy: NAO amplifies the nonprofit sector’s voice through public policy and advocacy work on behalf of Oregon’s nonprofit sector. NAO directly advocates on behalf of all nonprofits, as well as catalyzes important conversations with policy makers and among nonprofits. We work to raise the awareness of nonprofits’ work, issues and need for policy change. We educate and inform policy makers and others at the local, state and federal levels to ensure that nonprofits can continue to do the direct service work they do for the benefit of our communities across Oregon. Learn more.

Through these programs and services, NAO helps to connect, improve and advance the nonprofit sector across Oregon.

Join us and be part of an effective and connected network that is doing great things to improve and advance Oregon’s nonprofit sector!

Princess Eugenie’s Official Wedding Photographs Released

Windsor, England. If you’re like us, the wedding of the youngest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, caught us a bit by surprise. It happened without the buildup of the nuptials of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William or Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. The royal family’s press office has released portraits from the princess’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank – presented here with other pictorial highlights from the wedding day in Windsor. The newly married couple is pictured in the White Drawing Room, Windsor Castle with their bridal party including The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh. 
Middle row: Prince George; Princess Charlotte; Her Majesty The Queen; The Duke of Edinburgh; Miss Maud Windsor; Master Louis De Givenchy.
Front row: Miss Theodora Williams; Miss Mia Tindall; Miss Isla Phillips; Miss Savannah Phillips.
Back row: Mr Thomas Brooksbank; Mrs Nicola Brooksbank; Mr George Brooksbank; Princess Beatrice of York; Sarah, Duchess of York; The Duke of York. (The images were taken by photographer Alex Bramall in the White Drawing Room at Windsor Castle and later in the day at the private dinner at Royal Lodge.)

In this second photograph the couple are pictured with their Bridesmaids and Page Boys, again in the White Drawing Room at Windsor Castle.

A fall wedding makes for cooler temperatures and less bugs if you’re outside. With a plethora of pumpkins, there are some festive and unique wedding styles to embrace.

October was the month U.S. Army veteran Justin Lansford married his longtime girlfriend, Carol Balmes. Lansford’s service dog, a golden retriever named Gabe, served as best man.

Seasonal fall flower can have bold combinations of the jewel-toned colors like deep purple, rust, scarlet, and gold.
