Kristin Leiber here, and I’m so happy to be checking back in with you. The end of the year brings big feelings: winding down and reflecting, looking ahead, considering priorities, and putting a few final touches on 2023. We’ve had a rad year full of reconnecting with the neighborhood, city leaders, and partner organizations as we grew in size and stature. For many nonprofits, the end of the year is a time when individuals enter a season of community giving, in line with holidays, warm feelings, and year-end giving considerations.

We’re lucky to be one of the vetted nonprofits participating in WW’s Give!Guide for the 2023 giving season. While also being one of the best ways to connect and support Portland nonprofits, this campaign is also an excellent way for us to launch our individual donation outreach to the Portland community for the first time. So, let’s take advantage of this opportunity.

Join me for a few minutes each week to learn a little about what we do, with a look back at 2023 and ahead of 2024. We’ll send reminders of available prizes – both ours and the Big Give Day prizes! And we’ll share opportunities to hang out at happy hours and karaoke events as neighbors in Lloyd and sustainable, resilient, equitable community development.

Today is the first opportunity to give and is also the 1st Big Give Day! This means that any donation made today to Lloyd EcoDistrict gets a chance to win a bag of beans from a longtime partner and local favorite coffee shop, Green Bridge Coffee.

Any donation made to any Give!Guide organization today (November 1,2023) will also have a chance to win an Oregon Getaway package.

I’ll check in with you weekly over the next two months. I invite you to come along on this journey with us and see what resonates with you!

Warmly,
