Donate a home or property

Donating property to Catholic Charities of Oregon is a thoughtful, generous way to create a major impact on the housing issues that face the underserved members of our community. We turn gifted property and buildings into life-sustaining permanent housing. Contact our Development Office at donations@ccoregon.org if you’d like to learn more about donation options or to discuss a particular property or building donation.

We’re here to help.
