In a nutshell, Give!Guide is Portland's easiest path to end-of-year giving. The campaign begins on November 1 and closes at midnight December 31.
Give!Guide is Willamette Week’s annual effort to raise funds for — and draw attention to — the good works of local nonprofits. G!G has raised over $48 million for hundreds of local nonprofits since inception in 2004.
Last year’s campaign raised $7,845,497 for 203 local nonprofits and the Oregon Cultural Trust from 16,702 donors. The grassroots campaign is supported by numerous local businesses, provides healthy incentives to donors, and emphasizes giving by Portlanders under the age of 36 to build a culture of citizen engagement.
G!G showcases small, medium and large organizations whose missions fall into ten categories:
- Civil & Human Rights
- Creative Expression
- Human Services
