Portland Fruit Tree Project has been chosen to participate in Willamette Week’s 2011 Give!Guide. The Give!Guide provides an opportunity for you to support some of Portland's best nonprofit organizations, and get great incentives and prizes in return! It's a fabulous way to support the unique and valuable work of the Portland Fruit Tree Project.
The Give!Guide goes live November 8th and donations are accepted through midnight on December 31st. Check it out! wweek.com/giveguide.
As a special bonus to PFTP supporters, if you give to Portland Fruit Tree Project in the Give!Guide between now and Thanksgiving (Nov 24) you will be entered in a drawing to win a 2-night stay for up to 10 people at a beautiful beach house in Manzanita! Give today!
Your gift will help Portland Fruit Tree Project provide fresh fruit to over 5,000 families in need through our Harvesting Programs, and prevent 45,000 pounds of valuable fruit from going to waste in the coming year. Your support will enable PFTP to provide hands-on opportunities for hundreds of people to learn tree care and food preservation skills, leading to greater self-sufficiency. Your gift will help us grow our new Community Orchards program, cultivating fruit trees on public lands and providing food and education to the community. Your support will help us provide a year-long skills training for 42 Tree Care Team members and improve the health and productivity of 130 fruit trees through our Tree Stewardship Program. And your gift will help us bring over 1,000 diverse participants together in meaningful activities in their communities. Give today!
Capital Pacific Bank will match the first $1000 donated to Portland Fruit Tree Project, dollar for dollar! Please take this opportunity to help our award-winning, grassroots programs continue to thrive and grow in 2012 and beyond...
