Capital Campaign

With bold thinking and big vision, Grace Memorial Episcopal Church, PHAME Academy, Grace Institute, and Northwest Housing Alternatives have joined forces to launch a project like no other in our community. Grace Commons will become a dynamic hub for creating, living, and sharing that marks the modern-day renaissance of an entire block in Northeast Portland’s Lloyd District and Sullivan’s Gulch neighborhood.   

Anchored by a historic church and featuring an affordable housing complex, Grace Commons will include accessible arts instruction and performance spaces, a public art gallery, a black box theater with a fully accessible tech booth, meeting rooms and offices, an open courtyard, an expanded community and parish hall, and a commercial-grade kitchen.

Grace Commons will celebrate the diversity of our community, and will be purposefully built to remove barriers to participation. Universal design principles will guide the design of both interior and exterior spaces, and future-facing technologies will be adaptable to visual and auditory needs. Together we will build a nexus where community, accessibility, and creativity come together to welcome all people.
