Give!Guide Great Success!Thanks to everyone who gave to us through the 2014 Willamette Week Give!Guide! You exceeded our expectations. From November 2nd to the last second of 2014, folks from around the country showed their love for Forest Park via their contributions.
"I have been enjoying Forest Park for almost 15 years now. I think it's one of the greatest places I've ever been and has literally shaped who I am today. (I've probably burned millions of calories running those trails!) The park is in better shape today than I have ever seen it, and that's due to the hard work being done by the staff and volunteers at the Forest Park Conservancy. That is why I've chosen to donate my time and money to this great organization!" - Steven Schaefer
Thanks to generous supporters like Steven, we surpassed our goal of $30,000 and raised a total of $31,043. That's over $5,000 more than what we raised last year.
"Forest Park has given me peak experiences for 25 years. In 2014, I finally started giving back through volunteer work and a donation to the Forest Park Conservancy by way of the Willamette Week Give!Guide. It was the most fulfilling holiday spending I can imagine. Now more than ever, I love Forest Park!" - Bridget Brown
If you love Forest Park but didn't have a chance to make your contribution through the Give!Guide, you can make your gift today.
Thanks to everyone for your ongoing support! Together, we make Forest Park an even better place. See you on the trails.
