As green as Oregon is, threats to our natural treasures continue to grow. We need more people supporting the environmental movement. EarthShare is working to make that happen. By giving to EarthShare and our 76 member charities, you're helping plant more trees, recycle more waste, move more quickly to clean energy, protect more threatened land and safeguard more clean water. Join us in making these goals possible.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Environmental nonprofits that work in Oregon need support to put their donations to work on three major goals: 1) keeping people healthy; 2) reducing climate change; and 3) protecting places for wildlife. Groups including Oregon Wild, Growing Gardens, Bicycle Transportation Alliance, The Nature Conservancy and dozens more need help to accomplish these goals. EarthShare Oregon provides the most efficient way to support all the issues you care about with one gift to us.
How will this project solve this problem?
Through EarthShare Oregon, each year, employees at hundreds of public and private workplaces have the option to contribute (with financial gifts and volunteer hours) to the good work of EarthShare Oregon's member groups, and contributions through GlobalGiving enhance that benefit to our natural world and healthy communities. Whether you are concerned about protecting land for future generations, protecting biodiversity, restoring rivers, providing support for clean energy your gift counts!
