Our annual giving program offers you 75 incredible ways to help Central Oregon

Central Oregon Gives is pleased to announce the success of their annual giving campaign, that ended with $704,000 raised for over 75 nonprofits!

Central Oregon Gives set their sights on a goal to raise $500,000 dollars for area nonprofits before the end of 2020. What If We Could's Rys Fairbrother and Source Weekly Publisher Aaron Switzer are thrilled that this year's goal out raised last year's and ended the campaign at $704,000 raised for Central Oregon nonprofits.

An additional $25,000 anonymous donation to the program, allowed Central Oregon Gives to offer nonprofits the chance to earn additional money. The top-earning nonprofit in the program got a $15,000 bonus, while those earning the top amount in their individual category also had the opportunity to win an additional $2,000. Also, the nonprofit earning the most donations of $25 and under also earned a $2,000 prize. This year, Saving Grace was the top earner, winning $15,000.

The Central Oregon Gives site is now parked until the program resumes in November of 2021. People interested in learning more about the nonprofits involved can visit our Give Guide section, where we maintain a portal of profiles on each nonprofit.
