HW – Donating to a non profit

Our class has the great honor and responsibility of organizing which not for profit organization will get 5% of the profits from our Willamette Market day! Often, for profit businesses donate to non profit organizations to help make the community stronger. Our Willamette Market day will earn lots of profit for us to go to on our overnight field trip, but we will also share 5 cents of every dollar with a local organization. Which will we choose? That is your homework!

If your family already knows and likes a local non profit, you can just google search it, and take a few notes. You want to post this tonight and tell the class:

1) Name of the non profit
2) The goal or “mission statement”
3) At least one important fact from the website
4) Why you like this organization (this is where you can add short personal stories, extra facts, or other persuasive writing. You can try to convince your classmates to vote for this organization)

If you and your family seem unsure of any organizations, you should think of non profits you have worked with at school, such as:

The Oregon Food Bank

Paws (click on the ABOUT link)


Habitat for Humanity

    The name of my non profit I’m hoping to donate money to is the humane society. The humane society is a kennel that helps abused, hurt, abandoned, and lost pets. I like it because it helps pets in need. Their mission is to help and find animals new forever homes. They have been doing this since 1883.

    Portland Rescue mission, feeds the homeless and gives them shelter. The people who run it are christian. I like this non profit because it can help the people who don’t have homes and it makes the homeless happy because, if you had no home and we’re super hungry and so cold, wouldn’t it fill good if you had a home and food to eat.

    Youth Music Project is a music school . Their mission is to provide outstanding music education for youth. This school offers free or low cost music lessons to youth. Research shows that music education increases the chance of success in school and can change a child’s life. My sister and I take piano lessons at Youth Music Project. We began taking lessons last spring. I like the teachers that teach me. I believe that this is an excellent music school for children and adults.

    The name of my non profit is the Oregon food bank. Their goal is to make sure no one goes hungry. The Oregon food bank would not be the Oregon food bank without partnership. I vote the Oregon food bank because they help make sure People do not go hungry. When I went to the Oregon food bank I could tell that they cared about everyone and that’s why I vote for the Oregon food bank.

I like this organization because it’s very important to stop animal cruelty.

  13. Hannah Young says:

    The non-prophit organization I found was the West Linn food pantry, they try to give food to people in need. They also only have volunteers who bring in food to help hunger. I would donate to Oregon Food Bank, but they have a big building and their organization is well known. West Linn food bank is in the basement of a church and they do not have as much food as the Oregon Food Bank. Also, they are in our own city so 5% going to them would be a good idea!

    The Oregon food bank is when we donate money to them so they can donate food to people that are starving. One important fact is that the “Oregon Food Bank is efficient and effective. Your $10 donation provides 30 meals for people facing
    hunger”. I like this non profit organization because they are realy generouse to other people because they donate food to people.

    Willamette Riverkeeper is a non-profit organization, whose sole mission is to protect and restore the Willamette River. We believe that a river with good water quality and abundant natural habitat is a basic public right. The Willamette River belongs to all of us, and should be protected as such.
    I like this organization because I swim in it.

    • Ryan Stout says:

      I think that this non profit should be the one we donate to because people can buy boats and ride them in the river and their boats can get ruined and I like my communitys river clean. another reason is because it helps the environment and I like to swim in the river and ride on boats in clean water.
