Incubate your brilliant Idea!
North and Northeast Portland neighbors have a passion for community and projects. Over the years, we have supported the incubation of community-based projects to enhance the livability of our area. Specificially, we support projects that help to futher our mission of addressing the community needs in our North and Northeast Portland neighborhoods.
Over the years, we have provided a foundation for ideas to become real projects and even grow into organizations.
How do I get started?
Brainstorm a project idea and draft up your notes. Ask your neighbors for feedback.

What NECN offers:
There are lots of ways that the Northeast Coalition may support your efforts. Our strengths are community outreach and marketing, strategy and entrepreneurial thinking, fiscal sponsorship, and connecting you to other resources.
Also, your neighborhood association offers a good platform to test project ideas! Feel free to contact one of their board members or send them a letter outlining your idea and ask if you could come to their next meeting to present it for feedback. It is possible that the association may be interested that you get volunteers or even a donation!
