Making a difference
At Pine Mtn Sports we recognize that our community is growing. As our population increases, the needs and demands of our social services here in Central Oregon are also increasing. We believe that it’s our responsibility to embrace and support those who are working hard to serve our neighbors in need – and we are asking for your help.
In 2016, We began building a team of “Community Ambassadors” made up of local businesses and individuals. Pine Mtn Sports and its Community Ambassadors support a single local charity through community outreach and fundraising for an entire year. Through this, we can all Resolve To Be Involved, knowing that we can truly make a difference when we take action together.
We need your help to achieve our goal of creating 200 Community Ambassadors! Each Ambassador pledges to consider a direct donation of $500 to the year’s designated non-profit. This dedicated group can generate $1000’s of dollars every year to make a huge difference for our local non-profits, our neighbors that they serve, and our objective of making Bend a better place for all of its residents.
If you are willing to add your name, or your family, or your business to our list of Community Ambassadors or have further questions, please reach out to us at Dan@pinemountainsports.com. Keep reading to learn who our current beneficiary is!
The Giving Plate
We are honored to announce that our 2023 Community Ambassador Program beneficiary is The Giving Plate, Central Oregon’s largest food pantry. This amazing community resource serves over 3,500 individuals per month who are battling food insecurity. Most of which are our housed neighbors and thousands of children.

In 2022, you helped us raise and donate $66,403 to Furnish Hope! You bought bike raffle tickets, made cash donations, donated at Powderhound, shopped with us on Black Friday, and filled your growlers – all to help Furnish Hope! Your dollars helped to create stability and a sense of belonging by providing the essentials that make a home… Bedding, a lamp to read by, cookware and dishes to prepare and serve a meal, a vacuum, or even a bunkbed. These are the items that can make the difference when a struggling, unhoused family needs to get out of a difficult situation and into a stable, comforting, and long-term home. Thank you! Learn More
In 2021, we’ve raised an amazing total of $104,984 for Family Kitchen! This total comes from a mix of our Community Ambassadors who donated $500 each, and our 2021 fundraisers that included our AnyBikeYouWant Raffle, 50% of our Black Friday sales, and our Deschutes Brewery Growler Fills. Every one of these dollars raised in 2021 goes to providing free meals to our neighbors in Bend that need a hot, nutritious meal. When we started in 2016 we had a goal of being able to generate $100K in a year for our non-profit. Thank you all for helping to make this number happen! Learn More
Saving Grace of Central Oregon
In 2020, despite the most unpredictable year ever, you helped us raise $60,754.00 for Saving Grace of Central Oregon! A large part of this grand total comes from our awesome Pine Mountain Sports Community Ambassadors who donated $500 each. This years fundraising events including our Juliana bike raffle, a virtual Powderhound Preview, and donating 50% of our Black Friday sales. Every dollar raised provides essential services for those experiencing domestic violence and sexual assault in Central Oregon. Learn More
