The Harold & Arlene Schnitzer CARE Foundation believes that there should be opportunities for young people to create change. The CommuniCare program provides an environment where young adults learn about the needs of their communities through grant making and thus promote a long-term understanding and ethic of philanthropy and volunteerism. By challenging students to engage in community service that is both rewarding and educational, we hope to encourage them to become active adult citizens in their communities.


The Roosevelt High School Theatre Department CommuniCare Group will be granting money to non-profit organizations that provide financial aid or access to historically excluded people, including people of color and LGBTQIA2S+, who wouldn’t otherwise be able to participate in Visual and Performing Arts programs in the greater Portland area. We envision a world where the arts nurture a representative community of diverse storytellers who strive to share a variety of experiences, and to celebrate all humanity and identity as beautiful, joyful, and worthy.
