Sounds so nice we’ll say it twice: Unitus is now an Official Partner of the Portland Timbers and Portland Thorns FC!

A natural fit

“The Timbers and Thorns have been such an important part of Portland’s identity, bringing, joy, excitement, and inspiration to our city,” said Steven Stapp, President/CEO of Unitus. “While we stand in awe of their success on the field, it is their countless off-the-field efforts to improve our community that make this partnership such a natural fit for Unitus.

“As educators in the community, one of our favorite parts is Timbers and Thorns players visiting local elementary schools to help kids develop a lifetime love of learning.”

The impact will extend for generations.

Unitus is now presenting partner of Rose City Readers, one of the organization’s Stand Together community-based initiatives. The program aims to magnify the importance of elementary school-aged children reading at grade level and to inspire kids to read every day, through reading assemblies and classroom visits with Timber Joey and athletes.

A Dream Come True

Our award-winning Dream Come True program is heading to Providence Park. Across six matches, children facing serious illness and their families will be hosted to a remarkable experience they can cherish together. That will include meeting Timbers players, enjoying VIP gameday tickets, and taking home a personalized jersey to commemorate the experience. Find out more here!
