Some say there's a "season of giving."
Some say the needs of our community are so great that no one season can encompass them all.
Wherever you land on that argument, the pages to come will give you many great ideas about where to put your dollars—and your time, in the spirit of giving to those who need it most.
The nonprofits listed in our 2017 Give Guide not only see the need year-round, but they also understand the need to share their mission, and their story, with the world. Each of the nonprofits listed have opted to be listed here, and we're happy to have them. Without the important work they do every day, our community wouldn't be the enviable place we know it to be!
Here's the complete list of nonprofits featured in this year's give guide.
- Coordinating more than client services for the Latino Community Association, read about the work of Milagros Aparicio.
- About the work of KPOV station manager, Jill Mahler who keeps the community radio station running smoothy on the airwaves.
- Or how Ann Richardson, the managing director of the Sisters Folk Festival, helps to bring music to children in the community.
- The dedicated poetry instigator Krayna Castlebaum.
- See how Central Oregon Veterans Outreach champions, Kathy Skidmore and JW Terry working with veterans—and those needing helping— as they enter the winter season.
- And, how Rise Up International's Jesse Roberts helps the nonprofit spreads its wings in the art of resistance.
Read on to find out more about each nonprofit—and remember: no contribution to their cause is too small. If you can't give during this season, there's always another—and that's why we keep our Give Guide information live on our website year-round.
