As we emerge from the darkness of a winter marked by COVID, our staff and students are looking forward to the brighter days of spring and summer. Slowly but surely, our students are returning to in person learning and building emotional resilience after a year of deferred dreams. To mark this transition, we are launching the Brighter Days Campaign. Throughout the month of June, we will be telling stories, sharing successes, and reaching out to our community to raise $80,000 in order to secure a bright future for our students. Use this page to find a way to get involved!


June 30th
Brighter Days Event

All donations to our Brighter Days campaign receive a link to our live, invite only, virtual event on June 30th featuring special guest speakers, the premiere of a new LearningWorks film, live music, and more. Donors in the Greater Portland area who give $250 and up will receive a special happy hour delivery, including a charcuterie box from The Gathering Board, beers from Rising Tide, a few special surprises, and a sweet treat from our very own LearningWorks YouthBuild culinary team on the day of the event! For questions about the event, email our Development Coordinator.

Help the Campaign with
Peer-to-Peer Fundraising

We are using QGiv as an easy-to-use, peer-to-peer fundraising platform. Through peer-to-peer fundraising, LearningWorks provides our existing donors with the tools they need to raise funds on our behalf. Like a Facebook birthday or marathon fundraiser, QGiv helps you to reach out to your networks and raise funds for LearningWorks, whether or not you yourself have the means to give. Getting started is easy!

We are excited to introduce and share the stories of these members of our LearningWorks family. We hope they inspire you as much as they inspire us.
