The Trail Blazers are committed to making our community better by dedicating resources to high quality, impactful nonprofit organizations in Oregon and SW Washington.
We’re proud to partner with these five organizations that improve the lives of children and families where they live, learn, and play during the 2014-15 season.
Big Brothers Big Sisters
We partner with Big Brothers Big Sisters to support one-to-one mentoring relationships for children experiencing adversity in order to increase school performance and high school graduation rates.
Boys & Girls Club
We support the Boys and Girls Club to help communities thrive by providing educational and athletic opportunities for kids after school, on weekends, and over the summer.
We work with Playworks to make recess safe, fun, and active for all kids, which increases participation in activities and sports and kids’ abilities to focus in class, and decreases bullying.
We join with SMART in their goal to get every child reading at grade level by the end of third grade, which significantly improves educational outcomes including high school graduation.
We stand with the Urban League of Portland to help communities thrive by pushing towards equality in education, employment, and economic security.
