Portland, OR

Duncan Campbell’s passion for helping society’s most vulnerable children grew from his own experience as a youth living in a distressed area of Portland, OR. Those experiences eventually led to his founding of four children’s organizations: Friends of the Children, The Institute for Children, The Children’s Course, and Youth Resources. Early on in Duncan’s career, Duncan worked with juvenile offenders and later served as a member of the Governor’s Agenda for Children, as Chairman of the Multnomah County Juvenile Services Commission, and was a founding board member of Children First. In 1997 he was a delegate to the President’s Summit for America’s Future in Philadelphia. As founder and Chairman of The Campbell Group, Duncan has more than 30 years of timberland investment and forest industry experience. He holds a BS degree and a JD degree from the University of Oregon, is an attorney-at-law and a CPA. Duncan devotes his life to serving vulnerable children and families and has been closely involved with Friends of the Children since its inception in 1993.
