Congratulations to the winners + finalists of Best of Portland Readers' Poll 2020

We don't need to tell you it's been a rough year—for everyone, really, but local businesses in particular. Over three uncertain months, thousands of you stepped up to vote for your favorite restaurants, bars, nonprofits and other cultural institutions—the companies, places and organizations that make this city such a unique place to live—and show how much they matter to you. Here, you'll find the winners and finalists in for Nonprofits. To view the winners & finalists for other categories click here.
