2020 Census

We are committed to a fair and accurate census count. As the fiscal agent and backbone of the Census Equity Funders Committee of Oregon (CEFCO), and the affiliated Oregon Census Equity Fund (OCEF), United Way is supporting the strategy for reaching Oregon’s hard to count communities.

UWCW along with CEFCO were able to successfully leverage a $1 million commitment from private philanthropy to secure a $7.5 million, first of its kind, investment from the State of Oregon and a $600,000 investment from the City of Portland. In total, United Way is managing the $9.6 million raised through private and public funding for the state’s campaign, We Count Oregon. Through Census Assistance Centers (CACs) and the We Count Oregon campaign, United Way and CEFCO established over 100 partnerships with community-based organizations across the state.
