Planned Giving

Increase your impact by making a planned gift to Maybelle Center.

Maybelle Center for Community has been serving those living in Old Town-Downtown Portland for 27 years. While there are many organizations focused on those that live on the streets in our neighborhood, Maybelle Center is unique as we focus on those living in the more than 30 poor, low-income hotel buildings housing thousands of people. These buildings and people have been mainstays in this neighborhood and there will continue to be a need to help the access resources as more of them will be built in the future to house those currently homeless.

A planned gift provides you with the opportunity to continue supporting Maybelle Center far beyond the end of your life. Through the thoughtful gift planning with our experienced staff, we can help you and your advisors navigate your options. No matter what you choose, it should be the best for you and the impact you want to have on our community.
