The Renaissance Foundation is located in Portland, OR. Primarily our efforts are focused in the state of Oregon, but we fund organizations and proposals all over the US. In 2019, we expanded our scholarship programming to reach students in Chicago, IL and Baltimore, MD. One aspect of the foundations work involves awarding funds to our scholars in the Renaissance Scholars program. Most of our students choose to stay in the state of Oregon, with a handful of students moving out of state for their higher education. Our topmost attended schools include Portland State University, Lewis & Clark College, University of Oregon, Oregon State University, and Pacific University. We work with students to maintain academic success throughout the school year and host events for students to meet up and engage with each other, foundation staff, and our co-trustees, Irving Levin and Stephanie Fowler.
Over the years we have worked with many different organizations and companies to create beneficial partnerships. For more information about our specific partnerships with educational organizations, visit our partnership page.
