Oregons kitchen table community sourced capital

Oregon's Kitchen Table

Oregon’s Kitchen Table is a statewide online platform for civic engagement that can be used at nearly any scale (state, regional, and local). We believe that Oregonians have a lot to offer their state and their communities.

By providing multiple pathways for community members to contribute to public work (consultations, civic crowdfunding and Oregonian-to-Oregonian microlending), we increase the public’s understanding of complex issues and the appreciation citizens have for difficulties inherent in policy tradeoffs as well as increasing leaders’ respect for and willingness to seek the input and contributions that the public has to offer.

Currently, over 10,000 Oregonians have joined OKT – and that number rises every day and with every new project Oregon’s Kitchen Table undertakes.
