What is Give!Guide?
Give!Guide is an amazing and fun way to support your favorite nonprofit organizations during the end of the year! For more detail, read Give!Guide's snippet below:
In a nutshell, Give!Guide is Portland's easiest path to end-of-year giving. The campaign begins on November 1 and closes at midnight December 31.
Give!Guide is Willamette Week’s annual effort to raise funds for — and draw attention to — the good works of local nonprofits. G!G has raised over $40 million for hundreds of local nonprofits since inception in 2004.

Last year we were able to raise $18,433 out of our $20,000 goal with only 2 weeks of planning and this year, with many months of planning, new incentives and sponsors, we have a goal of $25,000!
Want to help us reach our goal? There are these special donating days called Big Give Days (BGD) to inspire you to give more frequently! Donating to a nonprofit on a BGD automatically enters you to win an exciting prize from one of our community partners. Do you like getaways, shopping sprees, cool products and experiences? G!G's got them and you could win simply by supporting us on a BGD. There's no limit to how much you can give on a BGD, so give big and give often to help us reach our goal of $25,000!
Check in frequently and watch the numbers rise!
What can you expect from us in the next few months?
As a supporter of Voz, you will see updates on this page of our website, weekly posts on our Facebook and Instagram pages promoting our sponsors, announcing Big Give Days, updates on where we are as far as our fundraising goal, and much more!
