BIPOC Community Donation Program
collage is committed to aid in positive change and support for our BIPOC community.
Each month we select one or more local organizations that benefit these local communities.
100% of donations from each store will be going to a chosen local organization.
Native Youth & Family Center
We will be accepting donations at all supply stores in November to go directly to the Native Youth & Family Center (NAYA)
On any in-store purchase at collage supply stores you can round-up to the next dollar, or make a donation of any amount.
NAYA provides culturally-specific programs & services that guide native people in the direction of personal success and balance through cultural empowerment. Their continuum of lifetime services create a wraparound, holistic healthy environment that is Youth Centered, Family Driven & Elder Guided. In Multnomah County, 50% of native people live in deep poverty. Our native community is over-represented in child welfare, homelessness, and incarceration, & experiences high levels of hunger, preventable illness, & early pregnancy. Native youth in Portland have the lowest high school graduation rate of any ethnic group.
Despite obstacles, the community continues to grow and thrive, remaining rooted in shared heritage as the inhabitants of these lands since time immemorial & representing the 9th largest Urban Native community in the US.
