The Oregon Healthiest State backbone organization is committed to staying small with a focus on measurement, convening where needed, and communicating a shared agenda. To represent Oregon fully, we aim to have a broad base of small contributors ($10-25k) alongside those who are interested in larger contributions ($50-100K).
