At 1000 Friends we think a lot about what impact our work today will have on Oregon's communities and quality of life in the future. We know that you do too. Whatever you might be thinking about planned gifts, we hope you'll take this opportunity to learn more from a trusted expert. Please RSVP.

What is an Open City?
A place where everyone can live in an affordable community, where transportation investments are made equitably, where decision-making is inclusive, and where new growth is accommodated without displacing existing communities. And without sprawling over some of the best farmland in the world.
Open City is connects our work -- from development that makes economic sense for our region, to climate smart growth, to anti-displacement policies, to sharing the benefits of Oregon's livability with all the folks who live here.
In 2015, 1000 Friends of Oregon celebrates four decades of advocating
for healthy, productive communities.
