Business Conservation Champions – $20,000+ annual gift

“Whether you want to admit it or not, wild fish, free flowing rivers, and pristine waters chock full of invertebrates is what defines the character of that curious specimen called the Oregonian. Our cultural heritage would be amiss without the rapture and delight that pure rivers provide and thankfully we have organizations like the McKenzie River Trust to protect this cultural heritage born of water, rock, and fish.”

-Shawn Donnille, Co-owner and Vice President of Mountain Rose Herbs

 
“So Delicious Dairy Free is a passionate supporter of the McKenzie River Trust and their work to protect and care for the special lands and rivers of the South Willamette Valley. We directly benefit from the pure water of the McKenzie River watershed at our Springfield manufacturing operations, and we want to do our part to preserve and enhance this incredible natural resource for future generations.”

-Hansel New, Sustainability Manager of So Delicious Dairy Free

“Clean pure water is not only great for beer, it is essential for life! We are fortunate to have such a great source or pure water to support our community, and such a dedicated group working every day to improve and preserve it now and into the future.”

“Preserving and improving clean water and fish habitats is critical to angler and outdoor enthusiasts’ enjoyment. The McKenzie River Trust’s work is invaluable to protecting and promoting our most treasured resources.”

-Chris Daughters, owner of The Caddis Fly Angling Shop

 
“Without the highest quality ingredients, we cannot achieve our mission to brew the highest quality beer while providing exceptional service to our customers. That’s why we wanted to protect our brewing water source. We started the 1% for Watersheds program in 2013, donating 1% of sales of Watershed IPA in the Southern Willamette Valley to the McKenzie River Trust. Clean water is essential to the brewing process, and the McKenzie River Trust protects that resource.

-Jeff Althouse, founder of Oakshire Brewing

 
“McKenzie River Trust meets my every need in terms of the work they are doing: restoring, protecting and cultivating healthy habitats that create sustainable living conditions for all of us – flora and fauna alike. How could I not support them in as big a way as possible? I am so very grateful for all that MRT does and will continue to do in the future. It is an honor to support them.”

-Bev Hollander, CFO of Sheppard West, Inc.
