The PDX Currency Corporation is an Oregon non-profit company located in Portland.
Company operators envision a thriving local Portland economy where businesses are prosperous in large part because the community has recognized the importance of sustainable local merchants.The local paper currency created and circulated by the company is called Bridgetown Bucks.
The main purpose of Bridgetown Bucks is to redirect some of Portland area shoppers' spending away from big box retailers and into locally owned stores, restaurants and businesses.
A long term company goal is to increase demand for locally owned, made and grown goods & services. It is our expectation that a wide use of Bridgetown Bucks across Portland in the years ahead could help consumers satisfy more of their everyday demand for good and services through locally owned and operated companies.
