Forward Edge Goes Over The Edge

Catch your breath, step up to the edge, and rappel 140 feet down the brand-new Portland Astoria Building just one block from the waterfront in downtown Portland. The first 90 people committed to raising at least $1,000 for Forward Edge programs will earn a spot to go Over The Edge. Proceeds from this event will provide desperately needed help to children and families through Forward Edge’s feeding, safe water, education, housing, discipleship, and job programs in some of the world’s poorest communities. 

lasting transformation around the world

Child Focused

We focus on providing children with the tools and opportunities they need to overcome poverty and transform future generations.

Local Leaders

All of our programs are envisioned and run by local leaders pouring into their own people.

Sustainable Programs

We work with our communities, not for them, to determine their unique needs and discover creative solutions to overcome poverty.

We're in it for the long haul.

Changing futures takes time. And often, it’s done one child at a time. Perla is a stunning example of how the tangible love of others—and Christ—sustained over a long period of time can radically transform the life of a child born into poverty.

Who we are

Forward Edge is a highly accredited 501(c)(3) Christian relief and development organization connecting those in the U.S. and Canada with those suffering from extreme poverty around the world through child sponsorship, mission trips, and holistic community development.
