Eugene Weekly Highlights Friends' Literacy Initiatives

You've Got a Friend

In 1993, Duncan Campbell established Friends of the Children in Portland. Campbell is a University of Oregon alum and an Oregon philanthropist who created a model to support children who are statistically expected to end up in poverty. This model is now being exercised in 26 major cities across the U.S., including five in Oregon: Portland, Central Oregon, Gresham, the Klamath Basin and now Lane County.
