Catholic Campaign for Human Development Economic Development Grants Due October 12th

The Portland chapter of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development is accepting applications for Fall Local Economic Development Grants.


The application deadline is Tuesday October 12th.


CCHD Local Grant Proposals may be up to $5,000, which are available for one year. Local CCHD Grants fund or support economic development initiatives that are small or in the early stages of development. Economic development projects assist poor and low-income people to develop new businesses, create new jobs and protect assets. These local grants are intended for projects that provide the potential for those in poverty to participate in decision-making while having the dominant voice in the organization.

Affordable graphic design for non-profits

I'm a new freelance graphic designer looking to do work for local non-profits, and offering really low rates. If you're a non-profit in need of layout work, a new look, some slick new print materials, outreach resources, or other design work, I might be able to help you out. How does this benefit me? Well, first of all because I'm looking for some new challenges to help me build up my portfolio. And secondly, because I want to do what I can to contribute to non-profit work around Portland - environmental causes in particular. I would love to work with you, and we can work with whatever your budget is. Please contact me at [email protected] if you're interested!
