Welcome to Community & Contacts.

Even as our firm moves forward, we always care about giving back.

Community and connections are at the heart of Durham & Bates.

We support dozens of organizations throughout the country and the region.

Headquartered in Portland, Oregon, the Pacific Northwest has been our home for more than a century. Many of our national and international clients have operations that pass through the region every day. As such, we’re committed to giving back, and making a difference in the area where we live and work. Our associates dedicate hundreds of hours, and donate much-needed resources, to support dozens of organizations that advance the arts, fight diseases, feed families, provide clothing and shelter, and much more.

We dedicate hours, energy, and capital to organizations every day.

Supporting others is a natural instinct for every one of our associates.

Our members participate in grass-roots events. They dedicate time coaching youth sports. They provide critical financial support to ensure that organizations they care about can continue to push their missions forward.
