Give!Guide Campaign

November 25, 2014 - December 31, 2014

What’s Give!Guide?
Willamette Week’s Give!Guide is an annual print and online publication intended to encourage year-end charitable giving by showcasing Portland-based nonprofit organizations. The original intent of WW's Give!Guide was to introduce its young readers to the year-end charitable giving habit. Today, readers 35 and under provide 30% of all Give!Guide donations - it's a great way to introduce friends and family members to the gift of giving.  Last yer, WW readers gave $2,452,333 to 129 organizations.

What Makes Give!Guide Special?
Give!Guide makes giving giving fun and extra rewarding by offering many incentives for contributions. All contributors who give at least $10 at any time during Give!Guide season earn an incentive, ranging from free tacos to discounts at Portland area-businesses.

But what Give!Guide is especially known for is their “Big Give” days: predetermined days during which any donor who makes a gift of at least $10 that day has an opportunity to be chosen at random to win a special incentive prize. Big Give prizes this year include a a Powell's Books shopping spree, a Thorn and Timbers ticket package, a new bike from Bike Gallery, and a Salt & Straw Ice Cream party for you and 200 friends!  Follow the Donate Life Northwest Facebook page for alerts to upcoming "Big Give" Days!

Great - Now What?
Donate Life Northwest is proud to have been selected for Give!Guide for the first time this year. If you have been thinking about making a year-end gift to Donate Life Northwest, doing so through Donate Life Northwest's Give!Guide page is a great, fun way to do so. Plus, DLNW is offering our own incentives to thank and encourage giving: the first 30 $10+ contributors to Donate Life Northwest through Give!Guide will receive a gift from Tofurky

Get started by visiting and choosing the "Health & Wellness" category.  Campaign ends December 31, 2014.

Lane County Quilt Square Workshop

January 18, 2015

quilt email

This Lane County workshop is an opportunity for those with no quilting experience to gain guidance in creating their square, as well as to meet our community of volunteers. Each year in April, during National Donate Life month, Donate Life Northwest unveils a new Threads of Life Quilt. The quilts are dedicated to the memory of those who gave the gift of life, sight and mobility. They also celebrate the lives of transplant recipients and offer hope to those awaiting transplant.  Each quilt is comprised of individually-designed squares created by people touched by organ, eye, and tissue donation. Come out to this Springfield workshop and create a square for this coming year's Threads of Life Quilt. RSVP link coming soon.
