Celebrate Rural Communities in Oregon with Community Website Partnership’s Summer Online Auction
(Oregon- statewide)- June 6, 2022 Community Website Partnership’s 10 community websites serve over 295,000 rural Oregonians through community supported websites that provide: local events, volunteer matching, news, resources, and emergency info about Covid and wildfires. Community Website Partnership’s network of websites serving rural Oregon offers a free Directory and advertising services that help local businesses reach local audiences and build visibility across the state.
Recent wildfires and the COVID pandemic have made it more difficult for nonprofits serving rural Oregon to raise sufficient funds to continue doing their work. The Hub Team of the Community Website Partnership is offering a creative solution – raise money collaboratively and share the profits. This innovative approach runs counter to the every nonprofit-for-themselves model of the past where small nonprofits in rural areas are often pitted against each other to secure funds.
Community Website Partnership is helping to train, convene, and support nonprofits serving rural Oregon in Douglas County, Jefferson County, Sisters Country, Josephine County, Illinois Valley, Applegate Valley, South Coast and other areas across the state.
Check out Community Website Partnership’s Spring online auction which is live June 8 – 18th, 2022. It is a great time to learn how a network of networks can support each other while offering some really great auction items, reflecting the diverse and amazing rural communities in Oregon.
Featured items include:
Bidding is open Monday, June 8th at noon until Saturday, June 18th at noon.
