Once again, Portland showed up for affordable homeownership, donating $63,594 to Habitat through Willamette Week’s annual Give!Guide. The generosity of these donors placed Habitat in the Top 10 for all nonprofits participating in this year’s Give!Guide. Thank you Portland! 

Willamette Week’s Give!Guide is Portland’s easiest path to year-end giving. G!G showcases small, medium and large organizations whose missions fall into eight categories: Animals, Arts, Community, Education, Environment, Health & Wellness, Social Action, and Youth. In eleven years, G!G has raised nearly $13 million for hundreds of local nonprofits. Last year, WW readers gave $3,145,015 to 136 Portland organizations and the Oregon Cultural Trust.
