Willamette Week’s Give!Guide is Portland’s easiest path to year-end giving. G!G showcases small, medium and large non-profit organizations whose missions fall into eight categories: Animals, Civil & Human Rights, Community, Creative Expression Education, Environment, Health and Human Services.
Many of the non-profit organizations in G!G offer incentives for giving. Basically, donate money via G!G and get a gift in return!
Clutch has been supporting Portland non-profits Transition Projects and Oregon Humane Society since our inception. This year, we’ve taken it a step further and are offering G!G incentive gifts for donations to both organizations.
The first ten people donating $250-999 to Transition Projects will receive their choice of a Clutch Coffee gift. Ten G!G donors of $50 or more to Oregon Humane Society will be chosen at random to receive a gift. What gifts, you ask?
From the G!G web site: 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, work 32 hours a week or more, and make $40,000 a year or less.
In twelve years, G!G has raised over $16 million for hundreds of local nonprofits. Last year, WW readers gave over $3.5 million to 143 Portland organizations and the Oregon Cultural Trust.
