Do Some Good! Give to Schoolhouse Supplies via Willamette Week Give!Guide Today

November 4, 2015
11-4_PencilPete_Do a Lot of GoodOn November 4, the 2015 edition of Willamette Week’s Give!Guide went live. Willamette Week chose “Done a Little Bad? Do a Little Good” for this year’s Give!Guide theme. In homage, we sent Pencil Pete to the chalkboard after we caught him passing notes in class. If he had a bank account, we would have asked him to give to Schoolhouse via the Give!Guide instead.
As you may already know, the Give!Guide provides an excellent end-of-year giving conduit for local nonprofits by providing much needed exposure and exciting giving incentives. Schoolhouse Supplies has participated in the Give!Guide for the past several years and is taking part again in 2015.

Last year, we raised $16,180 via the Give!Guide. That was a great win for us and, with your help, we think we can do even better this year. Our goal for the 2015 Give!Guide is $20,000, all of which is unrestricted funding!
Here’s how you can help us reach our 2015 fundraising goal!

1. Make a donation to Schoolhouse Supplies


If you do nothing else, please give! Contributions of all sizes are welcome and greatly appreciated. Donations can be made at
Willamette Week has arranged a number of dollar-based incentives to motivate giving. They’ve also coordinated six “Big Give Days.” People who make donations on any of these days will be entered into a raffle to win some truly fabulous prizes including a Portland Trail Blazers ticket package, a bike give away form Bike Gallery, and a Salt & Straw ice cream party!

Schoolhouse Supplies will be promoting our fundraising efforts via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. If you’re not following us, yet, this is a great time to start! Follow the links to view our profiles and connect with us! We’ll be posting  at least twice each week between November 4 and December 31st, usually on Wednesday evening and Thursday morning. (This is a great way to keep track of Big Give Days, by the way)

3. Post about your donation on social media
