Community Involvement

A history of giving back

The importance of giving back to the community is woven into the fabric of our firm, and is something we have been doing since our early days. Recently, the Portland Business Journal recognized Geffen Mesher for our philanthropic efforts in corporate and foundation giving among medium-sized companies.
