What is the Active 20-30 Club of Portland?
The Active 20-30 Club of Portland is a group of young professionals who are looking to better their community by assisting the needs of children. The primary reason for our group is philanthropy — it doesn’t mean we don’t have some fun and network in the process!
How many members are in the club?
Membership fluctuates from year-to-year, but we are always looking to grow the club. The more members, the more we can do for our community!
Is there an age requirement?
Yes. The Active 20-30 Club is limited to those ages 20-39. For those who age-out of the club, we offer annual past-active socials each year which encourage life-long involvement.
How do I become a member?
We are consistently recruiting new members and we encourage interested parties to contact us regarding upcoming events and membership applications.
How often does the club meet?
The club has one board meeting, typically held the third Tuesday of each month beginning at 7pm. The location may change, so please check our Facebook page for the most up-to-date information. We review past events, receive committee updates, prepare for upcoming opportunities, and spend a bit of time socializing as well!
Along with “business meetings,” we try to gather at least once each month for a service project and another time for purely social reasons such as trivia night or movies in the park. This offers members a great balance between hard work and having fun.
What are the financial commitments?
The Club has annual dues covering both local and national expenses. Currently, our dues are set at $200 annually and can be pro-rated based on when you join. We are willing to work with members during financial hardships that may need to spread their dues out over the year. Remember that many employers are willing to pay membership dues, so don’t forget to ask!
What are the time commitments?
There are no formal time commitments, but we do like to see our members at our meetings and projects throughout the year. Our goal is to provide plenty of opportunity at different times to accommodate different schedules. We figure you’ll get as much out of the club as you put in. In addition, all of our members are expected to attend and help with the annual events like the Back to School Celebration and the Garage Sale Fundraiser.
What charities does the club support?
We have served a number of local charities, including:
- Bridge Meadows
- Children’s Book Bank
- Oregon Food Bank
- Habitat for Humanity (Build and ReStore)
- Ronald McDonald House
- Northwest Children’s Outreach
- Holiday Magic Store
- Sand in the City
- Luke’s Lego C Carnival
We are continually looking to work with other children’s charities and do when opportunities arise. If you are a charity that serves children and are in need of support in the Portland metro area. Please send us a detailed email to firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
