  • Sound Equine Options
    An equine veterinarian founded Sound Equine Options (SEO) in 2009 after witnessing the plight of horses whose owners had succumbed to financial crises. Without the funding to provide them with adequate care, owners were forced to watch horses languish, and many could not find adequate resources for the animals. Sound Equine Options filled this void by strengthening the safety net for horses in need through a variety of programs. The Emergency Veterinary Care Fund helps reduce immediate suffering with the help of a local veterinarian, and the Rescue Blankets program distributes waterproof blankets to keep horses warm during the winter. SEO also supports equine rescues that make sure neglected horses have shelter.

  • Haydens Helping Hands
    After their daughter, Hayden, was stillborn at 32 weeks of gestation in 2010, Rebekka and Randy Hauskin's hospital bills served as a painful reminder of their loss. As a result, they decided that they wanted to help other families dealing with this type of tragedy, and in memory of their daughter, created the Oregon-based nonprofit Hayden's Helping Hands. The foundation helps Oregonians after the birth of a stillborn baby by paying for a portion or all of their hospital delivery expenses, so they can focus on healing rather than financial burdens. The amount of financial assistance is determined by the foundation on a case-by-case basis, and all payments are made directly to the medical facility.

  • Friendly House
    When the First Presbyterian Church founded Friendly House—then named the Marshall Street Community Center—in 1926, it was dedicated to a spiritual mission. But when the 1930s gave rise to the Great Depression, its focus quickly shifted to social concerns out of a desire to help those affected by the economic catastrophe. Friendly House’s scope and reach continued to expand over the next few decades, and today it enriches the lives of community members from every age group with educational, recreational, and life-sustaining services. The neighborhood center and social-services agency help prepare children for school through playgroup and preschool programs. Friendly House also provides housing assistance and transportation for seniors and homeless families and brings the community together through martial-arts classes and other workshops.

  • Oregon Food Bank
    Oregon Food Bank seeks to address the problem of hunger through local advocacy and by distributing food to relief agencies such as food banks, soup kitchens, and shelters in Oregon and Clark County, Washington. The organization's network of partner agencies then provides that food directly to people in need. Oregon Food Bank obtains nutritious fare through a combination of bulk purchases and donations. As the need for hunger relief has increased during the last few years, so has the number of Oregonians and Washingtonians whom Oregon Food Bank serves.
