November 1 - December 31
THE COMMUNITY GIVING CAMPAIGN OF THE SEASON IS HERE
The Give!Guide is Portland’s easiest path to end-of-year giving. Hosted by Willamette Week, this year’s campaign features 232 nonprofits working together toward a goal to fundraise $8 million between Nov. 1 and Dec. 31.
And it’s all made possible by you.
Start donating to each of your favorite nonprofits and see the Give!Guide’s most ambitious fundraising goal become a reality for organizations doing good throughout the Portland Metro area. Plus, join in on incentive giveaways, Big Give Days, and community events for the chance to get a little while you give!
We hope you’ll join us as part of the 2022 Give!Guide community:
Help us build partnerships for life
Animal Aid is excited and grateful to be among the nonprofits participating in this year’s campaign. Our organizational goal is to raise $30,000 by year-end.
In 2021, Animal Aid assisted more than 112 animals and their families in the Portland metro area: We cared for 95 cats and dogs through our rescue and adoption program, provided over $8,000 in financial aid for urgent medical or behavioral care to 17 animals and their guardians through our Animal Aid Cares Fund, and shared more than 5,000 lb. of food and a wide variety of animal care supplies with our 16 It Takes a Pack partners and local guardians.
Beyond the numbers, the biggest impact that we make in our community is our focus on helping animals who have more extensive medical or behavioral conditions and thus fewer rescue options. By devoting the extra time, care, and resources that they need, we aim to save lives that might otherwise be lost, help bring together new families when those animals are adopted, and contribute to a more compassionate community for both the pets and people of Portland.
With gratitude to our Give!Guide Partners!
