Charles Maclean

2013, Ron Hering Awards

“To ignite passion for conscious community give-back.”

Charles’s life-long passion was “championing” (his word) philanthropy in individuals and organizations. His credo: “It is through giving and receiving that we discover what matters to us and … therefore who we are. We cannot not give and be fully human. I am convinced that much of the pain in the world comes from not giving and the joy comes from giving.” He was a founder of the multi-generational Trillium Hollow Co-Housing community, a “family of families” in Portland, Oregon. Charles was also was passionate in his support of basic sanitation rights and dignity for every human being.
