An important resource for the BIPOC community, Equitable Giving Circle is committed to creating peer-led, community-funded transformational change. Their work aims to build immediate and increased equity throughout Portland’s BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) communities through a combination of fund development and network-building opportunities that center on economic equity.
Through their CSA Program, Equitable Giving Circle supports the community with a two-fold approach. Funds are first used to support local Black and Brown farmers. The produce from the farmers are then paired with products and goods from local food businesses and distributed to over 400 local BIPOC families facing food insecurity.
