Literary Arts in the Give!Guide 2017

  • This event has passed.

Literary Arts is proud to be included in Willamette Week’s Give!Guide for the 11th year in a row! When you make a gift to Literary Arts through the Give!Guide, you’re supporting literary programming for the entire community.

The 2017 Give!Guide features 150 of Portland’s most impactful nonprofit organizations providing key services and support, focused on: Animals, Civil & Human Rights, Community, Creative Expression, Education, Environment, Health, and Human Services. 

Last year, you helped us raised $19,000 to support thousands of readers and writers of all ages across Oregon. Help us break this record of giving and raise more than $20,000 to support Oregon’s literary community!
