2014 ended with a bang for Right Brain and other nonprofits featured in the Give!Guide. The 2014 Willamette Week Give!Guide reported that 10,276 people donated a total amount of $3,140,015 to various nonprofits throughout the Portland community. This is a major increase from the previous year’s Give!Guide results of over $2.4 million.
The Right Brain Initiative is happy to report significant increases as well! This year, we reached our goal of $17K in donations from 272 donors:
- More than half of those donors are return donors from 2013, a 10% increase from 2013.
- Almost half of donors were under the age of 36–that’s 130 people! Because of this, we also won the $1000 bonus from Give!Guide.
- AND 126 of our supporters made their first contribution to Right Brain in 2014.
So I guess what we’re trying to say is…THANK YOU.
Thank you for all of your support and dedication to The Right Brain Initiative. Thank you for helping us provide arts education to K-8 students in the Portland area, and thank you for believing in the crucial role that the arts play in the lives and educations of youths everywhere. None of this would be possible without you!
Here’s to another successful year!
