Yes for Affordable Homes campaign says the company is just one of many who’ve donated—and they’ll accept the check.
Short-term rental company Airbnb, facing scrutiny for its role in adding to Portland’s housing crunch, has donated $5,000 to the campaign to build more affordable housing in Portland.
The company’s PAC, the Committee to Expand the Middle Class, donated to the Yes for Affordable Homes on Friday.
The bond measure on the November ballot will raise $258.4 million over the next 20 years, according to backers’ estimates.
Bond measure backers downplayed the significance of the Airbnb donation.
