The Right Brain Initiative


Year-End Fundraising a Success!

January 7th, 2016 by Right Brain Team


Happy New Year! We’ve had a smashing holiday season here at Right Brain and want to share our gratitude for all the support we received during our year-end giving campaign. Between the Willamette Week’s annual Give!Guide and our own online donation portal, individual donors raised us $20,269, equipping Right Brain with the funds to serve four more schools in the coming year! 

On New Year’s Eve, we wrapped up our sixth and most successful campaign with the Give!Guide. This year, thanks to the 279 donors who gave through the guide, we were able to raise $17,440, plus an extra $1,000 for rallying the most givers under the age of 36 in our category. 


What do these numbers mean? In the coming school year, hundreds more students will be exposed to meaningful arts-integrated classroom experiences, and their teachers will be equipped with the game-changing tools of Right Brain’s professional development sessions. This is a huge deal! Right Brain sends a heartfelt thank you to all those who support us in any capacity – your investment in the Initiative has a lasting impact on kids in our community.


We also want to give a shout-out to the winner of our weekend in the wine country getaway, Alex Blue! Here’s a sweet pic of Alex and her daughter – thanks Alex! Hope your weekend away is one for the books.
