City Club’s founders were citizens of action.
When they started our Club in 1916, they worked together to solve problems for the common good. Over the last century, the City Club of Portland has grown and evolved to reflect the values and temperment of the times, but it has never strayed from the member-driven model that has enabled it to thrive for nearly 100 years.
We are still a Club that spurs citizens to action.
Today, when a few powerful voices can dominate the political dialogue, more and more people are depending on organizations like City Club for unbiased information and thoughtful debate.
As members we are responding by creating programs and conducting research on the truly important issues in our community. We are convening people and organizations of divergent beliefs to listen, learn and lead in crafting creative solutions and advocating for their adoption.
To remain true to our values of independence, City Club has always been member-driven and member-supported.
However, membership dues cover only 40 percent of our operating expenses.
To support the rest, the Club relies on additional gifts from members and supporters like you.
