Become a Member

Annual gifts from people like you provide the critical ongoing support we need to work with local landowners on new projects, offer education and outreach opportunities on our protected lands, and provide matching dollars for the large grants that help fund many of our conservation projects. A gift of any size qualifies you as a member.

You might be wondering: What do I get for my membership gift?

  • You will receive news about conservation on a regular basis by the means you choose: print newsletter, email, social media. You just let us know.
  • You’ll also get invitations to regular tours and events, including our annual Living River Celebration.
  • And you’ll be contributing to all of our projects, current and future.
  • As a member, you’ll also be able to spend time with other members, people like you who love western Oregon and its natural splendors.
"Giving back is important to us. Our McKenzie River drinking water improves the quality of our daily lives in ways we can hardly measure. We brag about our water to anyone willing to listen. We live within a short distance of places others can only dream about. It is difficult for us to give as much as we would like, so we focus on what we can do. We can give modest monthly contributions to the Trust and that feels good."

The Earth Care Interfaith Fund

Trees, shrubs, and other plants, have the ability to absorb and store carbon from the atmosphere. Planting and maintaining trees serves to address concerns for many people about their carbon footprint. The Earth Care Interfaith Fund was created by local leaders in 2017 to support the values of people of faith in the greater Eugene-Springfield area for the “stewardship of creation” through partnerships with local organizations.

Workplace Giving

Many employers have a Matching Gift Program and will match your contribution by giving the same amount, or in some cases, more. Other employers may offer different options to help support charitable giving. Be sure to ask your employer about what they might offer.
