November 11 to December 31 . . .
This holiday Season, give to TLC Farm through Willamette Week's Give Guide and receive goodies in return - beyond the joy of supporting a fantastic community sustainability education center!

In the box at right, see live updates on how much donors are giving TLC Farm, compared to other Environmental organizations in the Give!Guide. The higher we are, the more likely new donors are to give to us!

Now, unlike most other Give!Guide organization, along with all the incentives provided by Willamette Week (listed below) TLC Farm is adding some incentives of our own:

  • Every donor who contributes $25 or more will receive
    • a $5 off coupon for People's Food Coop's year-round Farmer's Market (held every Wednesday at the store on SE 21st & Tibetts),
    • and a buy one, get one free coupon for Pappacino's Coffeehouse on SW Terwilliger.
  • Donors who contribute $50 or more will also receive a coupon good for half-off your visit to Portland Acupuncture.
  • All donors will be placed in a raffle for a party for 20 at TLC Farm, complete with excellent pizza from our earthen oven.

If you need more to tempt you, here are the goodies provided by Willamette Week to sweeten the deal:

If you give $25 or more to any of the nonprofits listed in this Guide, you’ll get an email containing an electronic coupon. Print it out to receive the benefits listed below. $50 or more to a single nonprofit will get you, in addition to the electronic coupon, an envelope containing additional goodies. Next, if you’re 35 or under and give $100 or more, you’re automatically entered in a drawing for all manner of goodies — including a cheque from Willamette Week for $1,000. Gifts grow as you give more - see below!
Finally, every one of you who gives the $10 minimum will have a chance to have WW’s Publisher cook you and a guest dinner at his house early next year.

There are incentives for the nonprofits, too. Whichever one attracts the greatest number of contributions from donors under the age of 36 will get a $1,000 cheque from Willamette Week, along with bragging rights.
