Thanksgiving is a day set aside for giving thanks.
Black Friday and Cyber Monday are set aside for shopping.

Giving Tuesday is a day to give back to the non-profits you value.
Generosity is a present that invests in our future with no wasteful packaging.

We’re using the hashtag #itsmyWHY to collect and share stories about why theater matters in the lives of young people, specifically the teens we serve in our Young Professionals Company, a year-long program for dedicated students seeking advanced training for careers in the theater.


Join the #itsmyWHY campaign this Giving Tuesday (November 27, 2018) with a gift to OCT’s Young Professionals Company, bolstering the strength of a program that stokes the fire of young people to believe they can grow in art and life, and inspire others.

Your gift keeps the program accessible, providing education, mentoring, and performance opportunities to young people so they can grow, be inspired, be validated, and empowered.

Make a donation on Giving Tuesday and help us reach our goal of $10,000 for kids in one day! If your life has been a little bit brighter because of Oregon Children’s, please consider participating by making a donation. All gifts matter and any amount is appreciated.

Young Professionals - They’re our WHY! Can they be your why too?
