The Willamette Week’s eight annual Give!Guide is here!
It’s an easy way to supportPortland’s amazing non-profits, including a number of our valued community
- Harper’s Playground
- Street Roots
- The Classroom Law Project
- Audubon Society of Portland
- Growing Gardens
- Elders in Action
- Habitat for Humanity
- Community Warehouse
- Schoolhoouse Supplies
In its first year, the guide generated $24,000 in donations. Last year, our community collectively gave an astounding $1.16 million.
The Give!Guide focuses on young donors, between the ages of 18 and 35, helping build a new generation of donors committed to supporting local non-profits.
And did we mention prizes? Donations between $10 and $499 will receive a postcard loaded with coupons good for discounts and freebies all over town. (In addition to those goodies, the first 1,000 or so donors of $100-$499 will receive a Chinook Book app.)
A $500 to $999 donation will get you home delivery of a wine from A to Z Wineworks, a nice bag of Stumptown Coffee, Widmer beer and a Chinook Book app, and more. There are also prize tiers for donations of $1,000 - $2,499 and $2,500+, including a personal visit from one of WW's owners!
The more you give, the more you get - we hope you'll take part.
