The Contingent empowers leaders and mobilizes community for the common good.
A group of people trained for action.
The Contingent is a venture nonprofit that addresses many of the largest injustices and vulnerabilities facing Oregonians today. At a time when the status quo is a divided society, The Contingent becomes an enduring and essential group of people standing in the gap and creating new leaders to confront the challenges ahead.
We see needs and we fill them. We saw a need in the foster care system, and now we’re trusted with foster family recruitment for the entire state. We identified a lack of representation in leadership, and now each year hundreds of students of color are flourishing in college and getting elite jobs.
