9 Bridges hosts the NW Book Festival each July in Pioneer Courthouse Square. This event brings writers, publishes and other contributors to the literary world from all over the NW region to the heart of Portland and draws between 3,000 and 4,000 visitors annually.
Volunteers are a vital part of 9 Bridges. From a one-day group volunteer opportunity(Such as our NW Book Festival) to assisting with our monthly workshops, company employees can work together as a team to help the 9 Bridges community. Please contact us if you are interested in putting together a group volunteer project.

Many community minded companies will support annual workplace giving campaigns where employees can chose to make a payroll deduction to a charity of their choice.
Many companies will also match their employee’s contribution up to a certain amount. If you make a donation to 9 Bridges, be sure to ask your Human Resources department if they will match your contribution.
