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 $40 million for hundreds of local nonprofits since inception in 2004.The campaign begins on November 1 and closes at midnight December 31.
What this means for us at Candlelighters:
More local people who want to support families with childhood cancer will hear about us….more than we could normally reach on our own! The grassroots campaign is supported by numerous local businesses, and provides healthy incentives to donors, and emphasizes giving by Portlanders under the age of 36 to build a culture of citizen engagement.
There are incentives for giving for ANY gift of $10 (see below) AND when you donate on a Big Give Day, you will be entered to win BIG prizes.
But you must give through our page on Give!Guide for these incentives!
Here’s what you’ll get as a Give!Guide donor:
- free treat from Gluten Free Gem Pastry
- free class at Flex & Flow
- free chips & salsa from ¿Por Qué No? Taqueria
- free Chinook Book app access
- free $6 credit to use anywhere that accepts Kuto payments!
Mark your calendar for the Big Give Day prize you have your eye on! When you donate on a Big Give Day you’ll be entered to win an exciting prize, like a Salishan getaway, shopping sprees, and cool products. Some BGDs have extra chances for donors 35 and younger to win! You’ll be entered for every donation you make and there’s no limit.
