Verde serves communities by building environmental wealth through social enterprise, outreach, and advocacy. Since 2005, Verde has brought new environmental investments to Portland's neighborhoods, involved community members in the planning and building of these investments, and ensured that low-income people and people of color directly benefited from the investments.
Verde has been a Brainerd Foundation grantee since 2018.
