Operating Cost Donations
Northwest Hospitality separates our operating cost budget from our program budget to put the power in your hands to decide exactly where your money goes. Operating costs are unavoidable so we can't emphasize our gratitude enough if you decide to support us in this way. Occasionally operating cost funds are directly used to fund our programs, for example if we are just a bit short to cover supplies or hospitality cards, but program funds will never be directed to anything but our programs.
Use this PayPal link to donate to our Operating Cost Account
FREE TO PLAY, SUBMIT YOUR ANSWERS BELOW! :) (We'll start the donation/prize format in a few months)
One of these fundraisers is our Lemmings Champion competition every month. Donate $10 through the link below by the 25th of the month and you will receive an email with a Family Feud style quiz. Answer the prompts and you get points that reflect how many of your competitors answered the same way as you. Whoever has the most points at the end of the month wins our $50 grand prize! May the best lemming win!
In defense of lemmings: Lemmings are NOT the mindless cliff-jumpers they are so often portrayed as, this is a silly myth. And look how cute they are!
Send Kit Supplies
Another great way to support Northwest Hospitality is by sending kit supplies directly to us so we can assemble the kits and get them distributed. Monetary donations will be more cost effective over all, but if you have some supplies available then we'd love to get them out to the people. Alternatively, please consider getting some friends together and creating your own kits!
Please send supplies, care of Northwest Hospitality, to PO Box 1152, Olalla, WA 98359-1152
If you have a question about whether a particular item will be appropriate for the kits, please contact us and we will be happy to discuss it with you.
Contribute Fundraiser Prizes
Events and campaigns for NWH fundraising make use of donated items to encourage participation and drive donations. If you are an artist, musician, have a small business, or have any other suggestions, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or reach us through our contact us page.
Donated items may be raffled, auctioned, or sold directly with donor wishes being taken into consideration. Values can also be assigned to donated items for tax deduction purposes.
If you donate and want to have your website/info advertised here on the NWH site (as seen below), we would be happy to share links and images...we can't profess to be effective advertising but we will certainly do what we can :)
Fundraiser Prize Contributors
Allison Preisinger is the sister of NWH Director Anton Preisinger. Jade EP is her most recent release and it showcases her beautiful music, thoughtful lyrics, and skillful composition.
Allison's Jade EP will be offered as a raffle and/or auction prize in upcoming fundraiser events.
FOOD & BEVERAGE
Northwest Cellars is a local winery in the habit of collecting awards for quality that far exceeds their price tag.
Northwest Cellars is graciously offering to provide wine from their excellent selection for NWH's upcoming drawing. As soon as we reach 25 recurring donors one of you will win a prize direct from Northwest Cellars worth ~$30 and tasting like much more.
Marc Dewey is a Northwest artist, photographer, and cinematic crew member - most recently for the Syfy channel's Z Nation filming around Washington State.
Marc's art is fantastic and he is offering prints of his artwork as a prize for upcoming raffle and/or auction events. Specifics will be released with event details.
At the risk of offending the real contributors sharing their talents with NWH's generous donors, NWH's Director, Anton, has decided to contribute what he can. Anton dabbles in woodworking from time to time and a popular little project has been his awkwardly-named towel label hooks, seen to the left.
Raffle or auction winners of this item will receive personalized hooks that increase towel rack efficiency AND keep people from messing with your towel!
This product is Anton's own design. Hand-made with love, he can put almost anything you desire on each hook.
This product is available (for an exorbitant donation) for direct ordering at any time. All of this purchase price will be directed into NWH's Kit & Card fund. Anton will not collect anything but slivers from your generosity.
Make Your Own Hospitality Kits!
Maybe the best way to get involved in the mission of Northwest Hospitality is to gather supplies and assemble your own kits. Get together with some friends, classmates, boy- or girl-scout group, church group, or any other willing friend and build some hospitality!
Hopefully, in the future, we will have sufficient support to enable NWH staff to order kit supplies and get them to groups excited to assemble for their local region. We want to do what we can to encourage this activity that both helps people living in our streets and strengths communities.
