Join 107IST in supporting community partners today (and everyday)

On this Giving Tuesday, please join 107IST by supporting some of the incredible community organizations we have partnered with this year.

Portland Community Football Club and the Liberate Sports campaign stand for everything we value. Their commitment to equity and access in youth sports is unmatched, and is backed up by the unique work they do to support families who are part of their community. A competitive youth soccer org with a food pantry! That is gender-inclusive and affordable! We love PCFC and are so proud to be one of the first official sponsors for their Liberate Sports kickoff event in March 2024. Please join us and amplify the impact of your member dollars by donating today. Let them know you heard about it here by choosing “107IST” from the dropdown menu.

Operation Pitch Invasion and Giselle Currier Scholarship Fund are independent 501C3 organizations that grew out of our 107IST community. Both are also focused on the goal of providing access for everyone to be involved in the beautiful game. OPI builds and maintains soccer and futsal courts around the Rose City, and GCSF provides direct scholarships so individuals can continue to be involved in youth soccer. Visit OPI and GCSF donation pages to donate directly to these organizations.

In the realm of social services, we encourage your support to some trusted and effective local organizations. These folks have been doing the real work, on the ground, through some of the toughest conditions ever. With the politicization of poverty and houselessness, they have faced unprecedented backlash and hate while doing their best to serve all individuals with dignity and respect. Please show them some love if you can. Rose Haven, Blanchet House, Outside In, Hygiene4All, Street Roots, and William Temple House are just a few of the organizations we are proud to support.

Finally, all the support we share year round wouldn’t be possible without our members. The 107IST mission is to support soccer in the Rose City from the grassroots to the highest professional level, and our additional community connections are inherent to who we are as an org. While the 107IST isn’t a tax-deductible organization, we are a member-driven nonprofit.

Please renew today if you haven’t already. Once again, we are offering various membership add-ons because basic memberships just don’t cover the costs of all we do. Your additional donations allow us to keep the cost of a basic membership low, while continuing to spread the love throughout the community. Renew or join today or make an additional donation if you can!

Thank you all for your support. We’re extremely glad you’re here.
