Donate to the IPRC
Word is spreading about the IPRC thanks to the thousands of folks who have become involved in the space through membership, library usage, workshops, and outreach programs.
Whether in schools or at our center, more folks of all ages are learning about the empowering strength of self-publishing. The IPRC is a totally unique place and demand for our services is on the rise. Unfortunately, so is the cost of maintaining and improving all that we have and do.
Network for Good is a secure service, but if you're not comfortable with an online donation, physical checks can be sent to our new address: 1001 SE Division St., Ste 2, Portland, OR 97202.
Why Give to IPRC?
The IPRC is unlike any art center, book store, print shop, social event, computer lab, school, copy shop, library, or cafe you've ever been to. It combines the best qualities of all those places into a fantastic mix of learning, sharing and creating with reasonably priced workshops, work space & supplies, one of the largest free lending libraries of small press materials in the country, and amazing social and community outreach activities.
What you can afford?
Can you offer the IPRC $5, $10, $25, or even $100? Once you have established an amount that you can offer, add 10% more just to make it a little less comfortable! Now all you have to do is send it in and see what great things we bring forth. Your gift to the IPRC has many benefits and will be returned in services over and over.
Most of our services are provided through thousands of volunteer hours from over 50 individuals. We stretch the value of every dollar we spend. Where does the money come from? Mostly you. We receive a very small amount of foundation funding -- more than 80% of our income comes from individual contributions and user fees. More than ever, we need your support so that we can continue to offer our services at affordable rates. In return, you will be directly supporting all that makes the IPRC great:
- A creative atmosphere
- Friendly and knowledgeable staff
- Affordable rates for low and moderate income folks
- Our belief in preserving traditional printing and duplication techniques
- Technical education opportunities
- Amazing volunteers (some who have been here since the beginning)
- Access to the tools of production for everyone
- Connections to & knowledge of many resources outside of the IPRC
- A free small press/zine lending library of magnanimous size (over 5,000 catalogued items now!)
- A coffee pot
