Our 4th annual 100 Best Nonprofits to Work For in Oregon project celebrates great workplaces in the nonprofit sector. Nearly 5,000 employees and volunteers from 169 nonprofits statewide participated in this year’s survey.
The nonprofit project is based on Oregon Business’ 20-year-old, widely recognized 100 Best Companies project. The nonprofit project was created to recognize nonprofits as key businesses critical to the economic health of the state, employing hundreds of thousands of Oregonians.
There was no cost to enter the survey, and any organization registered as a nonprofit or not-for-profit or government group was eligible. Oregon Business research editor Brandon Sawyer, along with research partners DHM Research and The Nonprofit Association of Oregon, helped develop the survey and compile the results.
Here are the 2012 100 Best Nonprofits to Work For in Oregon as chosen by the people who count the most — the people who work there. We celebrate your great workplaces.
