Because of this, we are happy to announce that EPB&B has once again been recognized by the Portland Business Journal as a Top Corporate Philanthropist award winner, coming in at an impressive #2 on the list of small businesses and showing an twenty six percent increase in financial giving from 2022.
“It is so rewarding to be able to build relationships within our community and see firsthand the impact we can make with monetary donations and hands on volunteering,” says EPB&B Personal Lines Account Manager and Volunteer Coordinator, Olivia Astrue. “It is encouraging to gather year after year at the Portland Business Journal Corporate Philanthropy Awards and hear about the devotion so many local companies have to helping people in need in Portland, there is so much unseen love given. I am so grateful to have these opportunities and I am proud to work for a company with such strong values.”
EPB&B in conjunction with the Baker Family Foundation has had the honor this past year to continue to offer financial support some of our favoite local non profits, as well as learning about and supporting many new crucial small grassroots organizations, including; Path Home, Blanchet House, Breast Friends, Oregon Music Hall of Fame, One Tail at a Time PDX, Children’s Healing Art Project: CHAP, Stone Soup PDX, Birch Community Services, just to name a few.
Whether it’s providing housing for families in a tight spot, serving hot meals to people in need, promoting the arts through funding student scholarship programs, or offering support to animals, we welcome the opportunity to pay it forward by supporting organizations in the community that help improve the lives of others.A big thank you to our team members, customers and professional partners; it is because of your generosity and support of our mission that this recognition is made possible.
