Make a Gift to Share the Wonder

Give to Share the Wonder

Give Your Way

Share the Wonder is our moment to unite around a common vision for the future of the Gorge that we all hold dear. By investing in the campaign, you join an inner circle of citizen conservationists who fuel our work to preserve this ecological wonder for today and future generations. We are grateful to have you on our team, and welcome you aboard the journey to write the next chapter of the story of Gorge conservation. Making your gift helps ensure that the Gorge stays wondrous, wild, and open to all for generations to come.

All gifts to Share the Wonder make you a member of Friends of the Columbia Gorge.

Friends accepts Visa, Mastercard, and American Express. Make one-time gifts or schedule monthly contributions to Share the Wonder using the secure form below.

    Friends of the Columbia Gorge, 123 NE 3rd Ave., Suite 108, Portland, OR 97232
    Checks should be made out to “Friends of the Columbia Gorge” with “Share the Wonder” in the memo field.

As a member of the Wonderful Acre Club, Wonderful Oaks Club, or Wonderful Trails Club, you will become part of an exclusive group of Gorge protectors who will be recognized on campaign materials and included in a special celebratory event at the end of the campaign. Learn more about these special giving circles by clicking/tapping the buttons below.

When you donate securities, you make an outsized impact without taking money directly out of your bank account. Plus, neither you nor Friends of the Columbia Gorge will be taxed on the gains for appreciated assets you donate.

A Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) is a tax-efficient way for those 70 ½ or older to donate from their IRA, while also counting towards your annual Required Minimum Distribution.

Making a contribution to Share the Wonder from your donor-advised Fund (DAF) couldn’t be easier. Our tool integrates with most major donor-advised fund sponsors, saving you time while streamlining the grant request process.

To connect with our philanthropy team to learn more about different ways to give to Share the Wonder, including stocks, QCDs, or donor-advised funds, please contact Pam Davee at pam@gorgefriends.org (971.634.2036) or Lori Warner at lori@gorgefriends.org (971.634.0594).
