For Businesses

We’d like to invite you to become a partner of Friendly House, a community center and social service agency that has served Portland since 1930. Our programs are broad-reaching and diverse. From providing life-sustaining services for seniors to offering preschool scholarships for low-income families, there is something for everyone at Friendly House.


Corporate sponsorship of Friendly House programs and events offers your business an opportunity to increase your visibility while strengthening the community. Sponsorships are available at a range of levels with a variety of distinct branding, employee benefits, and unique outreach and networking opportunities.


Everyone needs a little help from their friends, and we are no exception. Whether you are looking for a one-time experience or recurring volunteer opportunities, we would love to have your help! We have projects big and small, skilled and unskilled, available year-round. Our volunteer manager is happy to work with you to find the best fit for your business at Friendly House. Visit our Volunteer page or contact us at



Does your business provide services that you could donate to Friendly House? Do you have experience and knowledge we could use to grow? Consider a donation, from carpet cleaning to legal services—we have needs as diverse as the clients we serve. Contact us with your ideas.

In-Kind Donations

What if you went to an auction and there was nothing to bid on? We are always looking for in-kind donations. From silent and live auction items to holiday gifts for older adults, from office supplies to toiletries for our community nights—chances are if you can donate it, we can use it. For more information visit our Wish List.

To make inquiries regarding sponsorships, in-kind donations, or volunteer opportunities please contact or (503) 228-4391 for more information.
