Happy 20th Anniversary!

This month, we celebrate 20 years of Stand! Learn about the history of Stand in Oregon.

Our Mission

Stand for Children is a non-profit education advocacy organization focused on ensuring all students receive a high quality, relevant education, especially those whose boundless potential is overlooked and under-tapped because of their skin color, zip code, first language, or disability. Will you join us in the fight?

Join us in the fight.

Changing the odds

Each year, we award scholarships at our Beat the Odds luncheon. We honor students who overcame tough obstacles thanks to great school staff, and we build momentum for the work to give all students in Oregon access to a great education. Meet a past scholar.
