In Kind Donations Make a World of Difference

Oregon Tradeswomen, Inc. relies on the support of community on a number of levels.  We welcome financial support from donors, private foundation, government granting entities and private business.

Thank You!

We also receive generous gifts in the form of goods and services from local businesses and community based organizations like Atomic Direct and The Rebuilding Center.

Atomic Direct donated tools and miscellaneous gear for our recent Social Hour Tool & Gear Swap.  The towels, assorted hand tools, drill kits and other gear were very popular with the tradeswomen who attended the event.  Atomic Direct builds brand awareness for a variety of clients using direct response television and is based in Portland.  The company was also one of our partners in last year’s Give!Guide campaign.

OTI has been working with The ReBuilding Center on N. Mississippi for quite some time and we recently returned to the center seeking 80 feet of CVG material for a project in our office.  The center came through with a generous donation so our Pathways training program can now finish a project building out a mezzanine here at our office.

The ReBuilding Center, a project of Our United Villages, is a vibrant resource working to strengthen the environmental, economic, and social fabric of local communities. The center includes DeConstruction Services, a sustainable alternative to conventional demolition, and will soon be launching ReFind Education, featuring workshops and classes on how to safely and creatively work with used building materials. They also offer a free pick-up service, purposeful volunteer opportunities, and donations of used building materials for community projects.
