A Message from our Executive Director

Andrew Grover

In 2020, Youth Villages Oregon  kicked off a $2 million campaign. Our goal: double the number of youth we can reach with our evidence-based program, LifeSet. Philanthropic dollars helped launch LifeSet in 2016 and while we have seen tremendous gains to increase the State of Oregon’s investment in outcome-driven services for young people aging out of care, this pandemic propelled the need to expand our capacity.

Collectively, we have raised $1.7 million to date. Now we want to invite YOU to be part of this final stretch. Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund was one of the first to commit to this effort with a $150,000 matching grant. They believe in the youth we work with, and they believe in each of you to help rise to this challenge.

Gifts up to $10,000 will be doubled to support youth in Oregon.

Your gift is an investment in a future of possibilities for a population of youth who deserve endless opportunities. I hope you will consider giving to this effort today.
