Get to know the Travel Portland Education and Training Foundation

What is the foundation and what can it do for you?

For more than 20 years, the Travel Portland Education and Training Foundation has provided our region with well-educated tourism workers by funding educational and training opportunities.

In partnership with community leaders and educational institutions, the foundation advances awareness of the value of diversity in the hospitality and tourism industry. Last fiscal year, Travel Portland awarded several educational scholarships and supported student internship programs with The Asian Reporter, The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, NAYA Family Center, REAP, and college and university hospitality programs.

Support the foundation, support our industry’s future.

Your support of the Travel Portland Golf Tournament, currently the signature fundraiser for the Travel Portland Education and Training Foundation, helps to fund and inspire future globally minded leaders in our industry — leaders who may one day become your employees.

Watch your e-mail for information about how you can support the foundation via the 27th annual golf tournament, which is scheduled for Sept. 10, at Glendoveer Golf Course. Golfers, sponsors and prize donors are all needed!

You can also contribute to the foundation when you remit your annual partner benefits invoice. Stay tuned for new fundraising events that will kick off in 2019—all continuing to engage our community, industry leaders and support the future pipeline of hospitality professionals.
