We’re in Willamette Week’s Give!Guide!

G!G Blog Post announcement

by CI Communications



Fall has officially arrived and we’re entering a season of giving and gratitude. With that, we’re excited to announce that for the first time, we’re participating in Willamette Week’s Give!Guide and our goal is to raise $20,000!

Give!Guide is Portland’s largest annual grassroots fundraising effort that showcases local nonprofits with the goal to raise as much money as possible for participating organizations and build a culture of giving.  

From November 1 – December 31, Give!Guide will highlight 200+ Portland nonprofits making big impacts in our community. This is a fun and easy way to give and raise awareness about Children’s Institute!



We need your support to help make Oregon the BEST place to be a kid. And when we work together, we can make lasting changes that ensure all children have access to the love, care, and education they need to thrive. 

Each week features a Big Give Day, with incredible prizes from some of Portland’s most-loved establishments. When you make a $10+ donation on one of these days, you’ll automatically be entered to win!

11/3: An e-bike giveaway from Splendid Cycles.   

11/9: Three prize packages from the Portland Trail Blazers.    

11/17: Four $250 gift certificates from Atlas Tattoo.
