The GiveGuide charitable giving campaign shattered is own record and goals for 2014, raising more than $3.1 million.

Winter’s Hill Estate was proud to sponsor 1000 Friends of Oregon, one of the Portland area non-profits selected to  participate.  1000 Friends also broke their previous record, raising more than $29,000 to support their efforts to protect farm and forest land, while promoting smart development of our cities.  Winter’s Hill Estate matched the first $5 of each donation to 1000 Friends of Oregon, totaling $900.  In addition, we will be hosting a special wine-tasting at Avalon Wine  on Jan 29 to thank everyone who made a donation to 1000 Friends of Oregon.

GiveGuide is sponsored by Willamette Week, but has earned the admiration of The Portland Business Journal and other competitors  for their success in encouraging young people to make charitable giving part of their holiday tradition.  In 2014, 40 percent of donors were 35 or younger, and 54 percent were new to the GiveGuide campaign.

Thank you to the other sponsors, and everyone who donated, you make Oregon a better place to live.
