WeMake and All Hands Raised CEO, Dan Ryan.
The power of community was evident earlier this month during WeMake Celebrates, and its impact will be felt long after the party has ended. We officially donated $10,000 to All Hands Raised to fund the First Octave Grant. This grant will directly support art and music education programs in Portland’s public schools.
Rock On! $1000 to PROWUS
Because of your generous donations, we were also able to make an additional donation of $1000 to PROWUS in honor of the amazing kids from School of Rock who performed at our event.
PROWUS – Portland Rock on With Us – is a non-profit organization that provides grants for music students ages 8 to 18 and supports the childrens’ rock and roll performance community. They provide grants and tuition help for students in music programs like School of Rock Portland, The Portland Cello Project, and Rock and Roll Camp for Girls.
Thank you, Portland! Together we’ve given our young people a chance to explore new creative possibilities and be part of this amazing community for years to come.

Someone told me the other day that WeMake was in the business of holding events. I was surprised, I guess because I never really look at it that way. Yes, we do put on events, but it goes much deeper. Whether you attend a sketchXchange, a discovery workshop, or participate in our design in action initiative we are in the business of inspiring. Inspiring creative, inspiring community and inspiring design in action.

Portland, Oregon never ceases to amaze me. It’s a great place to live, work, and play, and a great place to be a creative. Last year when we asked people to help us celebrate the process of making and the spirit of community they did not let us down. This year is no exception, in fact I think the makers outdid themselves.
