At Propeller, giving back to the community is a meaningful part of our culture. Through our Propeller Uplift program, we leverage the business acumen of our consultants to support the needs of nonprofit partner organizations. Our goal is to make a lasting impact and uplift organizations through strategy, professional development, or direct service.
Serving our local communities has been a focus since Propeller started in 2012. What started as a small group of enthusiastic founding members with a vision for our firm’s community involvement has evolved into an established and award-winning team across our Portland and Bay Area offices.

OUR COMMUNITY PARTNERS
Mercy Corps Northwest
In 2017, we started our partnership designed to support Mercy Corps Northwest’s goals in the Portland community. Mercy Corps Northwest works with local aspiring entrepreneurs and small business owners to strengthen their capabilities and to build a resilient, just and productive Pacific Northwest. The organization focuses on women, minorities, and low-income individuals. To date, nearly 30% of Propeller consultants have contributed numerous hours to the improvement and success of the Mercy Corps Northwest mission through educational programs and mentorship designed to teach and enhance business skills.
Impact Northwest is a Portland-based organization whose mission is to help people prosper through a community of support. In 2017, we invited Impact Northwest members to participate in a panel discussion on the topic of change in nonprofits for the Association of Change Management Professionals for the Pacific Northwest. As we listened to challenges that the Impact Northwest team was facing to become more adaptable and focused, we knew we could help. Since that time, we have been offering pro-bono consulting services to help facilitate focus, develop key strategies, and accelerate their mission.
