Columbia Riverkeeper has been selected to take part in this year’s Willamette Week GIVE! Guide. You have from November 7th to December 31st to donate through the GIVE! Guide.
The GIVE! Guide was founded in 2004 and its mission is to instill giving habits to Portlanders under the age of 36 as well as raise consciousness about nonprofits in the community and funds to support their work. Last year, more than 5,000 people gave nearly $1.6 million to 100 local nonprofits. We are honored to have been chosen as one of 100 nonprofits to be featured after a competitive application process, and we’re pleased as punch to have this opportunity to be featured in a publication that is distributed to 80,000 Portlanders each week! Learn more about GIVE! Guide and follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
