  • Aequitas Capital Donates 75 Tons of Food to Oregon Food Bank

    December 30, 2013
    A month-long corporate challenge has resulted in about 75 tons of food for Oregon Food Bank (OFB) from the rapidly growing financial services firm Aequitas Capital.

    The 130-person Lake Oswego-based firm, which specializes in alternative investments such as corporate private credit, formed teams around company executives for a four-week campaign that featured incentives, special challenges and engaging neighbor businesses.

    In all, cash and food donations equated to about three fully loaded semi-trucks, enough for OFB and its partners to provide 150,000 meals. Additionally, the Aequitas Capital staff spent approximately 64 hours volunteering at OFB and OFB West.
