The Give!Guide has been active for a few weeks now, and while we've been raising some money, we're looking to reach $20,000 by the end of the month. With your help, possibly further encouraged by some incentives, we can definitely get there.
If you haven't ever contributed money to KBOO, this is a great time and way to do so, especially if you are under 36 years old. One major goal of the Guide, aside from raising money for selected non-profits, is to encourage younger people to become familiar with the age-old practice of charitable giving. Plus, the group raising the most money, and the most separate donations, from people under 36 will receive extra money in the form of a prize. A little friendly competition never hurt, and your gift right now could help move us up in the rankings.
And as a special enticement for December, if you contribute $100.+ to KBOO through the Give!Guide you will receive a copy of the 2010 Portland Chinook Book, worth thousands of dollars in coupons to local businesses.
