Black United Fund of Oregon

The mission of the Black United Fund of Oregon (BUF-OR) is to assist in the social and economic development of Oregon’s underserved communities and to contribute to a broader understanding of ethnic and culturally diverse groups.

Our Three Pillars

BUF-OR is the longest-serving and one of the only BIPOC-led foundations in Oregon, and one of the last culturally-specific organizations remaining on historically-Black NE Alberta Street. For 40 years, our programs have increased post-secondary success for youth and provided philanthropic support to underserved communities.

Post-Secondary Options

We invest in YOUTH through access to training, workshops, podcasts, scholarships, mentorship, career planning, financial literacy, introduction to career pathways and opportunities, and network-building.

Community Justice & Equity

We invest in COMMUNITY JUSTICE & EQUITY by stewarding BIPOC and broader community engagement, hosting networking events, providing technical assistance, and more for emerging Black entrepreneurs and business owners.


We invest in PHILANTHROPY by providing community-based organizations with low to no cost physical spaces, technical assistance, mentorship, grants for emerging and grassroots BIPOC and/or women-led nonprofits, and more.
