ROSE CDC Fundraiser. You're Invited!


You are invited to attend a house party fundraiser to support ROSE CDC upcoming projects! 

Join us for an evening of food and fun, featuring gourmet wood-fired pizza and opportunities to network with SE Portland business leaders, city officials, and community supporters. 

When: Tuesday, October 1st, 2013 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Where:   Beth Crane's House 3824 SE 68th Ave Portland 
Please R.S.V.P. by 9/24 (503) 788-8052 ext. 15 or 

Our goal is to promote our mission and outreach to those who are not aware of our projects in SE Portland. ROSE is working on a series of new projects to build community wealth and strengthen relationships among our city’s most dynamic neighborhoods. For example, in partnership with Mercy Corp NW, we are working on implementing a Community Investment Trust that would allow low and moderate-income households to save money and begin investing in their community by collectively buying a commercial property in their neighborhood. Your support and attendance will be invaluable to ROSE. Hope to see you there!
