Ultimate Guide to Giving: Partnering with KairosPDX

Join Marmoset in Giving Big Music Licensing.jpg

Whether donating to a cause that’s near to one’s heart or giving back in big ways to friends and family, there’s something to be said about those who live to give.

If reading this and thinking how this describes your own spirit of giving, then you’ll want to keep close tabs on initiatives like Willamette Week’s Give!Guide. Perhaps you caught our kickoff announcement a couple weeks ago announcing our 10K donation matching promise to the KairosPDX — if not, read up on it here.

Why does a promise to match donations up to $10,000 matter to us? KairosPDX is a pillar within an ever-growing educational community, lessening the gaps throughout the public education system while uplifting those who often minimized or overlooked. Specifically, underrepresented youth.

In providing children with access to empowering tools and resources, Kairos is unique in its strides to instill curiosity through education. This encourages students to tap into their own personalities, to explore introspectiveness, a learning quality that isn’t always encouraged, especially as a minority in the classroom.

Building such creative habits also prompts students to learn openly, a path toward facing conflicts and challenges strategically — they’re everyday tools that a regular classroom doesn’t always organically provide to students of color.

Need we go on? Okay, we will!

Help KairosPDX reach their minimum 10K goal (since we’ll match them up to specific amount) then get ready for some big perks. Giving a minimum of $10 to the non-profit opens up a huge list of big prizes (check ‘em out here). We hope you’ll join us in giving, to help the far-reaching impact of Kairos and the young lives they’re helping to shape.
