Double Your Impact: 2016 POrCH Challenge

At Prometheus, giving back isn’t just part of our cultural fabric – it’s in our blood. Our founder, Sanford Diller, and his wife, Helen Diller, have modeled for us that “it’s never too early, too late or too often to make the world a better place.” That’s why we founded POrCH, or the Promethean Outreach and Community Help program.

Give where you live

For the fourth year, we’re proud to announce our annual partnerships with local non-profits. Our 2016 POrCH Challenge partners are Family House, Forest Park Conservancy, Loaves and Fishes, and Outdoors for All.

Dollar-for-dollar match

These nonprofits are located in our backyards, and we’re committed to giving back BIG again this year. Prometheus will match your donation, dollar for dollar, up to the challenge amount for each region.

The challenge ends July 31, 2016
