Their stories reveal that there are ways in which we all-regardless of wealth, location, age, or background-can give back to our communities.In addition to introducing Oregon's key areas of need and demonstrating diverse pathways into civic engagement, the book provides extensive resources for prospective volunteers and donors. Rousing, accessible, and enlivened by photographs of its people and places, State of Giving is an essential reference for anyone interested in building a better Oregon, starting today.
