We’re in the Give!Guide — Join Our Efforts to Create the Future of Media!

November 01, 2022

For the past six years, we’ve joined some of Portland’s greatest nonprofits in Willamette Week’s Give!Guide. The Give!Guide is Willamette Week’s annual effort to celebrate and raise funds for the amazing work of local organizations. We are honored to take part once again, alongside 234 other nonprofits making a positive impact in Portland’s communities.

Support Open Signal through the Give!Guide and join in our efforts to change the media landscape locally and shift the industry at large — to be more equitable and break down barriers that prevent full participation both behind and in front of the camera. Your donation in any amount means that we can continue to invest our resources in Portland-based storytellers — providing video production training, one-on-facilitation, production support, mentorship and equipment access free of charge to those from the full spectrum of experience. 

Over the past year, Open Signal community members have produced news shows, mockumentary sitcoms, music videos, documentaries, travel guides and so much more. Each of these productions is rooted in a unique history and perspective. Together we are creating the future of media — tune in and see for yourself!

Your donation also makes you a member, connecting you to our community of media activists through monthly meetups and other opportunities for networking and collaboration.
