Sponsors & Benefactors

It is with an abiding thanks that we recognize all of the individuals, organizations, colleagues, neighbors, and volunteers who make Cerimon House such a special place in the Portland community and beyond. We look forward to many years of connection and participation with all of the family & friends that have made our organization so special. The humanities and cultural arts are emboldened by your generosity of spirit.
