So many ways to support students in Oregon!

As we head into giving season, there are so many places you can support students earning college degrees. Here is a rundown of all the different ways you can support College Possible:

Shop at New Seasons – now through Jan. 29, 2019

New Seasons Market has a generous Bag It Forward program, and two stores have chosen College Possible as one of the options to support through it. Shop for your groceries at either the Sellwood (1214 SE Tacoma St.) or Concordia (5320 NE 33rd) locations and you’ll see our logo when you exit the store!

When you bring a reusable bag, you get .05 cents to the nonprofit of your choice (hint: maybe that’s College Possible?!). Now, it works the same way for every travel tumbler you bring to their coffee bar, container you bring from home for bulk goods and even a reusable produce bag.

Shop at Fred Meyer – always

If you’re a Fred Meyer shopper you can support students earning a college degree by choosing College Possible as the recipient for your rewards card. Log into your account to re-enroll or link your rewards card now.

Use Smile.Amazon.com when you shop – always

If you access Amazon through smile.amazon.com, 0.5 percent of your purchases of eligible products will be donated to the organization of your choice. Go ahead, change your bookmark from amazon.com to smile.amazon.com instead!

Giving Tuesday – Nov. 27

Mark your calendar for #GivingTuesday. Kick off the charitable season by making a gift on Facebook and the first $7 million in gifts will be matched—with no processing fees.

Give!Guide – Nov. 1 – Dec. 31

Willamette Week puts together a great Give!Guide to help donors decide where to give. Check it out! You might recognize the organization that is helping students get into and succeed in college in their education section.

If you have any questions about any of this (or any other ways to give to College Possible students), contact Christina Carl at CCarl@CollegePossible.org or 971.407.2975.
