Benefits that care about the people who care about the world.


We were born from the realization that traditional benefits models, well, sucked. Cost savings replaced compassion. People became numbers. Cookie cutter overshadowed community. So we departed from the dusty old convention and formed Blackbird Benefits Collective, a unique business partner that places value in bringing human connection and a whole lot of heart to your benefits program.

We recognize that each and every one of your employees has a myriad of distinct needs. That’s why we listen and carefully tailor offerings that fit your people, never pushing a one-size-fits-all package. After all, your employees believe in transforming the world. Let’s empower them every step of the way.


We celebrate the people who believe in better. Blackbird Benefits Collective is committed to partnering with organizations that are catalysts for positive impact. Equity, inclusion and environmental advocacy are causes close to our hearts and deeply rooted in our principles.

 We are a proud member of Business for a Better Portland, a city-based group that brings businesses and community organizers together to improve Portland’s future. The city—our city—has also helped inform Blackbird Benefits Collective, teaching us to be curious, creative, unconventional, and active. Being a Portlander isn’t just a designation. It’s a calling.
