This year's Give Guide is a game changer. Now, in addition to offering info on local nonprofits in the guide seen at the bottom of this page, you can also opt to donate to any number of nonprofits, all from one handy website! And as a special bonus, you can earn a thank-you gift too!
How It Works
1. Head over to centraloregongives.org, find the nonprofit you'd like to support, and donate directly from that online portal.
2. Receive a thank-you gift for your donation of $25 or more! The gifts change each week. The week of Nov. 14 gets you a free pint from Immersion Brewing. Donating the week of Nov. 21 gets you a free app at Rockin' Daves... and the list goes on.
3. Watch the donations for the nonprofits roll in! This year, an anonymous donor is offering a $25,000 bonus for the nonprofit that earns the most through the program!
From all of us at the Source Weekly, we thank the many community partners and nonprofits working together during this inaugural year of a partnership with What If We Could—a partnership that aims to amplify the giving in our community!
Also check out these "feel-good" stories of local people in our community, seen in this week's Source!
