Columbia Edgewater Country Club 2220 NE Marine Dr., Portland
The focus of this event is to annually recognize the UNCF Portland Portfolio Project student graduates. The UNCF Portfolio Project is a college preparatory program for high students who are college bound. The program is hosted on the Cascade Campus of Portland Community College.
The Each One Teach One Event was the brainchild of former UNCF Portland Leadership Council member Clarence Nesbitt and Michelle Harper, UNCF Portland Leadership Council Chair. It came from the idea of creating an event to bring the village together to celebrate high school student’s achievement and raise funds for the Portfolio Project and scholarships for Pacific Northwest students.
It is our responsibility as the village to invest, teach and pass on the knowledge so our youth will be prepared for the future.
The event has raised thousands of dollars for scholarships for Pacific Northwest students attending historically black colleges and universities and other colleges across the country.

UNCF is a beacon of hope to those young people who need assistance financing their higher education goals and currently has scholars earning their degrees at not only HBCUs but other schools, including Ohio State University, Miami University, Kentucky State University and Xavier University.
