Support Know Your City this Holiday Season!

With the new year on the horizon, we’re reflecting on seven years of vital community programming. With fears of division and discrimination elevated as a result of the election, 2017 is going to be the most important year yet for Know Your City’s mission of sharing stories of humanity.

And this holiday season, we are ask you and this great community, to help lead Know Your City into a better future.

Our hope is to raise $4,000 by the end of the year, which will empower Know Your City with the resources to compensate our staff and preserve our upcoming programs in 2017, such as Youth Print PDX, the second edition of the Oregon History Comics, and our summer walking tours.

Highlights from this past year’s KYC programs include: the wildly popular Hidden History of Albina Tour, the Boise Bulletin at Boise-Eliot Humboldt School, and our America’s Next Top Candidate forum and talent showcase. We’ve done all this on shoestring budgets and a scrappy 2.5 full-time staff, along with the help of many, many volunteers.

A donation of $25, $50, or $100 to Know Your City will make a difference in the lives of Portland youth and their families through programs that educate and build community.

Share this crowdfunding campaign, and donate to Know Your City!

Please make as generous gift as you are able. Please share this crowdfunding page with your friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers. Your contributions help us to lead a new conversation about our history, our culture, and defining Portland as a place where people of all identities are welcome, and celebrated.

And join us for the holiday season! We’re bringing our community together for a Winter walk of two of our favorite KYC tours. On Christmas Eve, we’re hosting our Secular People’s History of Portland tour and on Christmas Day, we’re bringing back our traditional Seedy, Seam Portland Tour with historian Doug Kenck Krispin. Just bring yourselves, and we’ll bring the peppermint candy canes!
