Our donors are the backbone of our organization. Through their generous and longtime support—many of them have given continuously since Basic Rights Oregon was founded in 1996—we’ve been able to achieve legislative and policy gains that have made Oregon the second most LGBTQ-friendly state in the nation. We are pleased to recognize the following foundations, businesses, and donors who made gifts totaling $250 or more in 2016. Their generosity made it possible to advance our work for LGBTQ equality. We thank them for investing in Basic Rights Oregon.
