The moment when something special happens.

Since 2012, KairosPDX has been bridging the gap that exists between education and marginalized communities in Portland. We are dedicated to closing the prolific racial achievement and opportunity gaps by cultivating confident, creative, compassionate leaders who exceed expectations at each milestone ages 0-10. Whether you give $25, $500, $2,500, $25,000 or more, your donation will enrich the intellectual, physical, social and emotional growth of every KairosPDX student, every day.

Every gift helps ensure that our students have access to the people, programs, and resources that prepare them to become the next generation of leaders who help change the world for good.

Give Monthly and Change History.

While the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted student outcomes and led to learning loss across the world, we remain focused on our number one goal- closing the achievement gap for our kids of color. More than ever we need to be vigilant about making strides to close the gap.

Closing the gap matters because it grows over time, having a lasting impact on students and communities. Low-income students and Black and Brown students are less likely to pass exams in math, reading, civics and science. That means less Black engineers, architects and doctors.

Help us change history and lend your support today as a monthly donor. You monthly gift allows us to strategically plan for our growth and success.

Maximize your gift by requesting a match from your employer. Your donation can double, or possibly even triple, its impact if your employer offers a matching gift program. Some employers will even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

The process is simple, but must be initiated by you, the donor. Contact your HR department to determine if your company matches gifts. Please note that there is typically a time limit to request a matching gift. Thank you in advance for taking this important extra step on behalf of KairosPDX.

We celebrate the generosity of the following companies who support KairosPDX through matching gift programs.

  • Bank of America
  • Intel Corporation
  • Kaiser Permanente
  • Nike, Inc.
  • PGE
  • Regence BlueCross BlueShield
