This fall, the 9th annual Willamette Week Give!Guide will feature 110 local nonprofits in an effort to encourage people under the age of 36 to become involved philanthropically in the Portland area. We are incredibly honored to be included in this year’s fund drive. During its first eight years, the Give!Guide raised over $5.33 million for local nonprofits. This year, they are shooting for $1.75 million.
When you give as little as $10, you will receive coupons for free and discounted goods and services all over Portland. In addition, if you donate to the Community Cycling Center through the Give!Guide, you’ll receive a sweet spoke card created by local designer and printmaker, Nicole Bittner.
Your gift will go even further this year thanks to our friends at River City Bicycles, Swanson, Thomas, Coon & Newton, and Nossa Familia Coffee– who have joined forces to match the first $6,500 in donations made to the Community Cycling Center through the Give!Guide.
Every dollar we raise helps us to broaden access to bicycling – and our year-end fundraising efforts are our biggest and most critical all year. Please urge everyone you know – especially your younger friends, coworkers and relatives – to make a gift to the Community Cycling Center through the Give!Guide!
