Willamette Writers gives a hearty thanks to all the various businesses, organizations and individuals in our community who help us provide you with the very best services and events. Please support them as a way to encourage their continued support.
Willamette Writers is a recipient of a Google Grants award. The Google Grants program supports registered nonprofit organizations that share Google’s philosophy of community service to help the world in areas such as science and technology, education, global public health, the environment, youth advocacy and the arts. Google Grants is an in-kind advertising program that awards free online advertising to nonprofits via Google AdWords.
Willamette Writers also receives support from Barnes & Noble for our Books For Kids and Young Willamette Writers programs. Books For Kids recently received over 3500 books from the Clackamas Barnes & Noble Book Drive in 2015.
For our FiLMLaB contest, we receive support from Final Draft and InkTip, who provide valuable information, software, and support for screenplay writers.
For our 2016 conference, we are seeking sponsors for our C. Whitcomb Scholarships and for our student Kay Snow Writing Contest award winners. Our C. Whitcomb Scholarships allows ten students and teachers to attend the Willamette Writers Conference. Student award winners are given three banquet dinners to our conference awards banquet. In the past we awarded two dinners to student winners and found some students and their families could not afford more dinners. We increased the dinners to three and we’re seeking a donation to cover the extra cost.
To sponsor the 2016 Willamette Writers Conference follow the guidelines here.
For more information about being a sponsor, contact us at wilwrite[at]willamettewriters[dot]org. We have demographic information about our 800 conference attendees and 1500 members.
