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 2021-22 is about $467,000 and total revenue about $471,000. 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 and Gresham-Barlow School District to support specific programs and opportunities for their students and educators.
