Oregon Raindrop Fund invests in progressive causes, organizations, and leaders that realize meaningful impacts toward economic and social justice in a thriving democracy.


The Progress Initiative supports 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) nonprofit organizations. We support “political campaign activity” by 501(c)(4) organizations to a limited extent. We do not provide support for direct services.
