Connect. Collaborate. Contribute.

Portlandia Club, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, was founded in 1987, to provide professional and entrepreneurial women a place to connect, collaborate and contribute together.

Portlandia’s past, present and future include a three-pronged approach to success in business, personal and philanthropic endeavors.

To help others, we must first help ourselves. Portlandia Club provides ways for members to promote their own businesses or services, as well as enjoying social time with other women.

There are monthly lunches with dynamic speakers, as well as “after hours” gatherings for fun and connection. Most years, there is an annual beach retreat and holiday part.

*Due to the pandemic, all meetings and events have been held virtually, including weekly Power Hours, with dynamic speakers, round table discussions and member “check ins”. Join us for one of our upcoming events, and get to know Portlandia.

We also collaborate with other non-profits benefitting women and girls. Organizations including Dress for Success, Girl Scouts, Women’s Trade Association, Period Inc, Cupcake Girls and the Alzheimer’s Association have benefitted from the time, talents and donations of Portlandia Club members.
