Synergy Resources Group was founded on the vision of being a part of a larger community. We've involved in giving back at the local level to make greater Portland a better place.
Empowering Latina Women & Families
Synergy Resources Group President & Founder Debra Dunn serves on the Adelante Mujeres Board of Directors, a local nonprofit organization that serves to empower low-income Latina women and families. "Adelante Mujeres" means "women rise up" in Spanish.
We're part of the Trimet Regional Task Force, helping to shape a bonding measure to pay for a multibillion dollar package of transportation projects, including a 12-mile light rail line between Portland and Bridgeport to create affordable housing.

Advising Freight Transportation Strategy
Based on our thorough experience in the freight transportation industry, we serve on the Portland Freight Committee, advising the City Council and the Bureau of Transportation about how to best get our region's goods to where they need to go safely and efficiently.
Mentoring Women in Business
In 2015 the Portland Business Journal selected Debra Dunn for the Women of Influence Award, after which Dunn and other award winners formed PDX Women’s Business Coalition. Among its many networking activities is annually hosting 'Mentoring Monday.'
