Help sponsor Portland’s century-old tradition of ensuring equal access to summer activities by donating toward free summer concerts and movies.

Over $300,000 are raised annually through grassroots fundraising, grants, and corporate support to make these events possible. The Portland Parks Foundation—an independent nonprofit—is proud of its partnership with Portland Parks & Recreation to provide an easy way for you to show your support of our city, its people, and our parks and recreation programs.

Visit one of our donation pages where you can direct your gift to the community and events you wish to help!

Let the Music Play!

This year’s concerts will bring live music to over 50,000 concert-goers in parks throughout Portland. Every community is tasked with helping to raise funds to let the music play. You can help your community by directing a gift to your favorite concert location

Free Popcorn!

Our city’s giant screens will rise up in support of free entertainment in numerous neighborhood parks this summer, providing the greatest community get-together of the year. You can direct your gift to your favorite movie event, and help ensure that the movie night tradition stays strong.
