Another Way to Make Your Holiday Gifts Count

  1. Updates

For the second year, Willamette Week chose Playworks Portland to participate in their annual Give! Guide effort. Last year this fundraiser brought in more than $1 million dollars for 79 local nonprofits and local supporters contributed $5000 to Playworks. This year they have expanded to include 100 nonprofits.

The Give! Guide’s goal is to develop new donors for organizations like ours. The Willamette Week puts special emphasis on identifying new donors under the age of 36—and provides awesome incentives worth approximately $100,000 to help bring this about. In addition, our corporate partner, Sports Authority will provide discount coupons for every donation regardless of amount.

Please be sure to make your holiday gifts to Playworks at Give! Guide beginning November 9th through December 31st and help us with another successful campaign. Portland cares about its kids and we’re happy to be a part of this great community. Thanks for keeping Portland Playful!
