Get involved

The residents of Vernonia are meeting this challenge in a truly remarkable way. Now it is up to us to support our neighbors in their time of need. Together with the investments of federal and state government, the generosity of the Oregon and national philanthropic communities, and the heroic efforts of the twice-flooded people of Vernonia, we can turn tragedy into triumph. We can create the schools that are the core of this community, the key to its future and a symbol of our broader Northwest values.

We have the opportunity to reestablish the heart of a historic Oregon community, and develop sustainable schools that are a model for other communities. But it can’t be achieved without your help. Please join us in Catalyst: The campaign for Vernonia’s schools.
