Business as a Force for Good
At Morel, philanthropy is in our roots. We support diverse communities because it’s only natural that when our community thrives, our organization does too. We invite everyone to get involved in giving back — including team members, clients, and partners. It is our fundamental belief that by working together, we can amplify our collective impact and make meaningful change.
Causes We’re Focused On
In order to focus our efforts and create the greatest impact where it matters most, we’ve identified several causes that are dearest to our hearts. While our impact isn’t strictly limited to these causes, we use these categories as a way to guide decision-making and prioritization — and also allocate additional resources to respond to the most pressing issues in our local communities.
Culture & Education
Housing & Food Insecurity
How We Give Back
A multi-year recipient of the Portland Business Journal’s Corporate Philanthropy Award, Morel gave $48,500 in 2022.
For some of our nonprofit clients, we offer some recurring production work for free — allowing them to dedicate valuable dollars elsewhere.
And of course, we also support individual employee volunteer efforts, and members of our leadership team sit on several nonprofit boards.
