The Cultural Trust is fortunate to have wonderful media partnerships, including our Days of Culture partnership with Pamplin Media/Community Newspapers, which resulted in a widely distributed special insert last month, and Willamette Week Give!Guide, which launched November 6.

The Give!Guide is an extraordinary mechanism for year-end giving. Nearly 40 Cultural Trust partner nonprofits participate in the guide, in print and online. The website allows donors to give online then make their Cultural Trust matching gift in the same easy transaction.

Once a gift has been made through the Give!Guide to any Trust partner nonprofit, a message pops up suggesting the donor match with a gift to the Trust, and it mentions the cultural tax credit.

Portland Metro Area-based Trust partner nonprofits such as Independent Publishing Resource Center, The Library Foundation, Fear No Music, The Circus Project, A-WOL Dance Collective, Hand2Mouth Theatre, Miracle Theatre, LiveWire! Radio, OMSI, Portland Gay Men’s Chorus, Friends of the Columbia Gorge and the Classroom Law Project are among the many that can be matched.

The time has come! Take a look at and let the giving begin!
