Ways to Give
Become a Member/Renew Your Membership
By joining 1000 Friends of Oregon, you will be adding your voice to those that know that the things we love about Oregon aren't accidents. Members help keep Oregon a state we're proud to call home, with livable communities, healthy farms and forestlands, and protected scenic and natural areas - today and for the future.
Join 1000 Friends through Willamette Week's 2013 Give!Guide and earn great rewards, like free wine tastings from our business partner, Winter's Hill Vineyard. Learn more about Give!Guide and what you can earn, and watch our one-minute video, at friends.org/giveguide.
Monthly giving is one of the best ways to demonstrate your love of Oregon on an ongoing basis. You'll save time and resources with no donation requests to clutter your mailbox. Your membership remains in effect until changed or canceled by you. You can stop or change at any time by notifying 1000 Friends of your wishes.
Membership gifts of $1000 or more per year entitle you to membership in the McCall Society, a group of leading donors whose generous gifts support our core activities. We recognize the generous leadership of McCall Society Members in our annual report. Benefits also include invitations to events around the state, brown-bag lunches and briefings.
Consider joining the McCall Society with a monthly gift of $84 or more.
If you are considering a major gift to 1000 Friends, making your donation with appreciated stocks or mutual fund shares is simple, efficient and can allow you to give more than you thought possible.

Honor your dedication to our state's unsurpassed beauty and livability, and leave a legacy that will directly contribute to the protection of these qualities for the future. Consider writing 1000 Friends of Oregon into your will or estate plan. 1000 Friends will work with you and your advisors to create a plan that meets your vision. This may also provide an opportunity for savings on capital gains and estate taxes.
We would be pleased to honor you as a member of our Legacy Club, for those want to protect Oregon for generations to come. For more information, contact Amanda Caffall by email or call her at (503) 497-1000 x137.
