Driven by influential community leaders in support of economic development, Boost Southern Oregon is an essential voice for bringing more business and good-paying jobs to the area.
Boost provides a public platform to support projects through partnerships and media relations — engaging government officials and community leaders to stimulate a growing local economy.
Boost Southern Oregon is a coalition of Oregonians bringing together community leaders, small local businesses, organizations, labor, and elected officials to make Southern Oregon a better place to live, work and raise a family. Together we are striving to make a better economy for a brighter future!
Boost Southern Oregon was founded in 2013 by a small group of Coos County citizens, community leaders, and elected officials who wanted a unified community voice. Boost Southern Oregon has now grown to over 1,000 members
“I believe that Southern Oregon deserves a brighter economic future. That’s why I’m passionate about bringing living-wage jobs to our communities.”

"Boost is a supporter of education and job training on the South Coast. Our members support the new Health & Science Technology Building at Southwestern Oregon Community College in Coos Bay."
"Boost Southern Oregon played a key role in defeating the proposed Traditional Cultural Property (TCP) Historic District planned along Coos Bay’s Waterfront… Our partnership with Boost Southern Oregon helped inform and mobilize property owners to stand up and defeat this destructive effort."
"I have been involved with the Jordan Cove project since its inception and I believe this project will help support economic development through public funds invested in the four southern Oregon counties."
