The Portland Workforce Alliance is an independent non-profit organization registered as a 501(c)(3) under the Internal Revenue Code. All contributions to PWA are tax deductible.

Our expense budget for 2023-24 is about $562,335 and total revenue is $565,500. The majority of this revenue comes from the private sector through the generous support of the business community and foundations. These funds support a small staff that organizes business and education partnerships in order to host programming such as the NW Youth Careers Expo, career days, industry tours and mentorship programs for Portland-metro high school students.

In addition, PWA has contracts with Portland Public Schools, Parkrose School District, North Clackamas School District, Reynolds School District, Gresham-Barlow School District and Oregon Charter Academy to support specific programs and opportunities for their students and educators.
