Willamette Week’s Give!Guide is Portland’s easiest path to year-end giving. G!G showcases small, medium and large organizations whose missions fall into eight categories: Animals, Civil & Human Rights, Creative Expression, Community, Education, Environment, Health & Wellness and Human Services. In thirteen years, G!G has raised over $16 million for hundreds of local nonprofits.
Last year, WW readers gave $3,501,400 to 143 Portland organizations and the Oregon Cultural Trust. The original intent of WW’s Give!Guide was to hook young readers on the year-end giving habit. Today, readers 35 and under provide 30% of the donations. G!G also honors four Portlanders 35 and under who do fabulous work for local nonprofits by awarding them the Skidmore Prize.
Winners must work at a local nonprofit, be 35 and under, and earn $40,000 a year or less. G!G makes giving fun for donors by offering incentives no matter how much they give, $10 or $25,000, or anything in between. We provide coupons good for free cups of coffee, pastries, and tacos for every donor, as well as home delivery of thank you bags by City of Roses Media Company’s owners, Richard Meeker and Mark Zusman, for those who give more than $5,000.
