Welcome to the Occupy Portland Finance Page. You can find the OPDX Spending page here.
This page is evolving. Please bear with us.
PLEASE NOTE: There have been several reports of people and/or organizations soliciting donations on behalf of Occupy Portland. PLEASE DO NOT DONATE TO ANYONE YOU ARE NOT SURE IS AFFILIATED WITH OR SANCTIONED BY THE OCCUPY PORTLAND GENERAL ASSEMBLY OR WORKING COMMITTEES.
If you have questions, please gather all the details you can about the person(s) soliciting and contact us here.
We appreciate people wanting to assist Occupy Portland, but they need to work directly with OPDX Finance or one of the OPDX Committees or working groups first to make sure that all money is accounted for and everything is done transparently. Presently Occupy Portland has not approved any door to door canvassing
or that involves solicitation. Please contact us ASAP if someone comes to your door on our behalf asking for money.

General Assembly Notes for 2011-10-25
The Finance Committee consists of one person from each committee if they so choose as well as members of the movement.
The mission of the Finance Committee is to oversee all activities pertaining to fund raising and the procurement of funds associated with the Occupy Portland movement and to insure that all funds are managed transparently and safe from improper use.
The Finance Committee also insures that all fund raising activities associated with the movement reflect well upon the movement itself.
The finance committee is responsible for distributing funds to specific purposes as approved by the General Assembly (i.e. Parks Restoration) and weekly Spending Committee budgets as decided through the Spokescouncil.
Full transparency is a must at all times for the Finance, Spending and all other financial matters pertaining to Occupy Portland. All meetings will be open for public observance, minutes will be kept and made public.
All donations and grants coming in and all expenditures going out will be made public and accountable
