The Fall Gathering: Building Foundations, Building Community

Thursday, October 4th, from 6PM to 8PM

On Thursday, October 4th, the Oregon Native American Chamber (ONAC) invites you to join us as we hold our 14th Annual Gathering event, Building Foundations, Building Community” at the Exchange Ballroom in Portland, Oregon. The Annual Gathering, ONAC’s signature event, is a unique opportunity for members, partners, and the Native business community to network, celebrate, and support the work of ONAC and its scholarship program.

Each year, the Gathering brings together Tribal representatives, corporate partners, city, county, and state & federal government agencies and community leaders to celebrate the contributions of ONAC members and the Native American business community.

Sponsorship

SPONSOR TODAY!

Each year ONAC leverages the financial and in-kind support of small businesses, nonprofit organizations, corporate partners, members, and individuals to host the Annual Gathering. We would not be able to host this event without the ongoing support of our partners and sponsors that help advance ONAC’s mission and provide the resources to support outstanding Native American college students.

We hope you will join us and support the only event that celebrates the Native American business community.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

In addition to the event sponsorship opportunities outlined in this document, you can also support the 14th Annual Gathering in the following ways.

Scholarship Sponsorship

Every year ONAC works with the community to identify, select and award up to 10 scholarships. Each year individuals, businesses, and corporations step up to sponsor the $1,500+ scholarships we award to outstanding Native American college students that represent the next generation of leaders.

In-kind Donations

Each year, the silent auction helps raise critical funds for ONAC and helps support the scholarship program. You can also help by donating:

  • Native American artwork and jewelry
  • Goods and/or services from your company or tribal enterprise(s)
  • Access to unique opportunities (eg. Hosted dinners, concerts, vacation home stays, golfing packages)

If you would like to donate items/services, please contact James Parker, Director of Operations, via e-mail at jparker@onacc.org
