Protect Community Media by Donating to Open Signal through the Give!Guide by December 31

November 09, 2018

For the second year in a row, Open Signal has been included with 150 nonprofits in the Willamette Week Give!Guide — Portland’s largest giving event. Donate by visiting our page here.

At Open Signal, anyone can learn to make media and broadcast their story. But we need your help to stand up to the FCC, which has proposed a new policy that would kill funding to community media nationwide.

Become a member of Open Signal by making any donation of $10 or more through the Willamette Week Give!Guide. Your membership makes you eligible to use our state-of-the-art media facilities and gets you access to member events. It also shows the FCC strength in numbers and helps us take action to fight this legislation.

Giving to Open Signal will help us provide resources for honing media arts skills, empowering Portlanders to tell their story on their own terms. Every donation of $10 or more gets you free giveaways from local brands like Laughing Planet, Nossa Familia, Chinook Book and more.

While you're at it, match your donation to Open Signal with a donation to the Oregon Cultural Trust and get your OCT contribution back as a credit when you file your taxes. Your OCT gift will then be granted to cultural nonprofits, public cultural entities and tribal coalitions across the state. Learn more.

Giving on designated Big Give Days will enter you into a drawing for prizes. See the dates and prizes below, and follow this link for more information:
