About Welcoming Week

National Welcoming Week is an annual series of events designed to bring together immigrants, refugees, and U.S.-born residents to raise awareness of the benefits of welcoming everyone. The week’s activities celebrate the contributions of newcomers and provide opportunities to build cross-cultural relationships and understanding. The 2019 Beaverton Welcoming Week was celebrated alongside more than 2000 events in communities across the country. Beaverton’s next annual celebration will take place Sept. 2020, as part of the broader city-wide Welcoming Beaverton initiative.

About Welcoming Week Mini Grants

The city sponsors mini-grants for small, interactive, community driven projects designed to bring together immigrants and U.S.-born residents to build cross-cultural relationships. Grant awards can range from $250 to $1000 and must be used for activities to take place in Beaverton during the annual Welcoming Week celebration held in September.
