The Spirit of Portland Awards recognize local individuals and organizations who have demonstrated an outstanding dedication to positive change in our community. Award winners are those who have not only worked to improve the community, but who have also gone above and beyond a dedication to civic engagement in order to make a lasting impact.
“Inscribed into Portland’s Skidmore Fountain you will see these words: ‘Good Citizens are the Riches of a City.’ I think that is also the message behind the Spirit of Portland Awards. For truly, where would we be without those citizens who step up, volunteer, lead, and find solutions to problems in their community?” says Mayor Hales.
“So often, these people do so with no thought as to recognition or personal reward. Since the awards began in 1985, we have been able to, in some small way, show our appreciation for the work done by neighborhoods, small businesses, non-profits and so many individuals who make our city a better place to live. They truly are the Riches of a City, and we are grateful for them.”
The City of Portland will make reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities and people needing assistance with language interpretation and translation.
