Our Story: Stewarding thoughtful change to the built environment
These days, topics like the affordability crisis, the homeless emergency, and the demolition epidemic dominate the local news. I’ve gone to meetings about these issues, and discovered overspending and ineffectual solutions. Taxpayers are often hit hard in the name of helping with housing, politicians are not aware of what construction costs should be, and the corporate interests of large developers seem to lead the community away from frugal and thoughtful solutions.
It dawned on me that I have precisely the tools to address these problems. All three issues revolve around housing, and as a builder, I know reasonable costs and quality. Further, I’m an activist, a developer, an architectural designer, and I own a construction company. I can make housing happen with speed and efficiency unmatchable by government. My father passionately fought for renter’s rights, parks, and preservation, so I have been civically engaged since I was a kid. As an entrepreneur, I’ve learned real world effectiveness.
The serendipity of being civically minded with the very tools to address the main problems confronting our community led me to create the McCulloch Foundation. Because we have the tools, we are your best conduit for making a difference. Through us you will have the biggest impact for every dollar or hour that you give. We all share the dream that the world will be better for our time in it; McCulloch Foundation is your best way to make that dream a reality.
We get results.
We are tackling the three greatest challenges facing Oregonians today: the homeless emergency, the affordability crisis, and the demolition epidemic.
We are building housing to fight homelessness and create affordability, called the Sharewell Model.The Sharewell’s shared living creates micro communities spread throughout the city. This model is also offered as a real estate investment opportunity designed to end homelessness. The Sharewell Model is infinitely scalable and tailor-made for groups who can better find success together.
