We want to shout out a big THANK YOU to all who donated to The Right Brain Initiative through this year’s Willamette Week Give! Guide. Our goal of $5,000 was exceeded, with total donations coming to $6,760! As a relatively new program, we are proud to have received such significant support from the community. We were thrilled to make new friends through the Give!Guide, and reinforce relationships with old ones.
We also want to recognize how how much Oregonians (and a few residents of other states) gave throughout the whole campaign—donating more money through the Give!Guide than ever before. Willamette Week‘s goal of $1 million was surpassed, with total giving landing at a whopping $1,135,428.31! It is amazing that even in these tough economic times, people are willing to do their part to help local non-profits excel. The following graph shows the breakdown of giving for 2010.
