Word from the President

Since our founding in 1910, the 650+ members of the Junior League of Portland have been developing programs and partnering with organizations in the area to improve our community. Our mission is clear: to promote voluntarism, develop the potential of women, and improve the community through effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. By staying focused on our goal, we have improved the lives of countless women and children in the greater Portland area. 

The Junior League of Portland is an organization steeped in rich tradition and history spanning 109 years. Several of Portland’s nonprofit programs and agencies can attribute their roots to our organization and the dedicated volunteers who had ideas and took action. Our members are passionately committed to our community. They are accomplished leaders who have used their training in the Junior League to develop programs, serve on nonprofit boards and serve in public office. Our motto for this league year is a nod to our roots with the rallying cry “We Can Do It!”. Because when we come together, there is nothing that we cannot achieve.

The work of the Junior League of Portland could not be accomplished without the support of you: our partner organizations, generous donors, passionate advocates and friends. Thank you for choosing to support the Junior League of Portland and joining us as we continue to improve our wonderful community.

Gina Ambrose
President, Junior League of Portland
