Beaverton Optimist Club

"Friend of Youth"

Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

Would you like to assist the Beaverton Optimist Club to come along youth in our community?  We sponsor scholarships, essay contests, Boy Scouts, and provide opportunities for youth to give back to their community.

Please consider a gift, no gift is too small.  As a matter of fact we are a 501c4 so we can't help you with a tax deduction unless your amount is $100 or more. We can then provide you a tax deduction through our International Foundation.

Please scroll down to the bottom of the "Financial Support Column" to make your donation.

Financial Support

We are a 501(c)4 non-profit so we can't provide a tax right-off for gifts under $100.  We can give a right-off through our Optimist International Foundation if it is $100 or more and made payable to the OI Foundation.  For smaller amounts you have two options:

1. Make checks payable to the "Beaverton Optimist Club" and send it to:
