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.
  • 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 splendor.

Business Supporter Program & Workplace Giving

Our Business Supporters are making lasting investments in fish and wildlife, clean drinking water, and vibrant landscapes that define our communities. You can join other business leaders who center their care for the environment in their corporate giving with McKenzie River Trust.

Many employers offer 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. Ask your employer about what programs they may offer or, share resources for starting a program at your place of business. 

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.
