Tis the season … for Give!Guide

The 2020 Give!Guide is here!

Willamette Week’s Give!Guide runs through December 31st and is a great way to learn about organizations that are doing amazing work on behalf of people, places, critters and causes (including trees + community, of course ;).

G!G features Big Give Days when donors are entered to win fabulous incentives like shopping sprees, vacation packages, and more.

Why give? Now more than ever, we need trees! They fight climate change, clean our air and water, and make this place beautiful. And when planted the Friends of Trees way, with all kinds of volunteers, trees grow community (ands we need that more than ever, too!).

Thank you for helping us plant trees together!

On Giving Tuesday we give trees
