Why We Need Your Support
After 10 years of service on N Mississippi Ave, Q Center needs the community’s help to give our building new life. Q Center receives over 20,000 visits a year as Portland’s LGBTQ2SIA+ community center, and our lack of resources for maintenance has intensified safety and operational concerns within our 6,500 square foot facility.
We strongly believe the people who depend on Q Center deserve access to a space that is safe, welcoming, and vibrant. It’s urgent that we make this space possible.
After a walkthrough with local contractors, our organizational leadership identified $100,000 in critical improvements needed to ensure Q Center remains a safe space for community. Thanks to the support of anonymous donors and a recent grant from Prosper Portland, we are 75% of the way towards achieving our budget.
In order to bridge over our funding gap, Q Center is launching a Resilience Campaign to raise $25,000 by July 1st and create a more resilient Q Center.
We rely on your financial support to achieve this goal!
