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 organizations that are located in North Portland and give money to support people in low income housing with rent and other household expenses. We believe that low income households who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic deserve the resources and the support to get back on their feet. We will focus on organizations that provide stability to those households with preferences to organizations that support or are close to arts organizations. We would like to see low income households that struggle financially benefit from our grant.
