EarthShare Oregon currently has more than 100 giving campaigns at Oregon businesses, most of which are taking pledges now. If you work for one of our business partners, you can give at work (or through GlobalGiving if you work at Nike or work for a business without a formal EarthShare campaign.)
EarthShare ensures that, for our donors, every dollar donated through EarthShare benefits nonprofits that are doing their work and doing it responsibly. We scrutinize their financial information, audits and stories about current projects to confirm that donors' dollars are making positive environmental change in Oregon and around the world.
Here are some NEW accomplishments by EarthShare Oregon members, made possible by our donors:
Northwest Earth Institute reached a course participant milestone—its 125,000th participant joined in discussion courses on topics including reducing dependence on oil, workplace sustainability, and simpler living.
Hells Canyon Preservation Council reduced improper old growth logging in the Hells Canyon area by 293 acres (70 percent), and temporary road building in the area by 50 percent.
Native Plant Society of Oregon - held 160 field trips, work parties, and workshops in ecosystems throughout Oregon. These trips educate participants (members and non-members alike) about Oregon’s natural history and native vegetation.
Thank you for giving through EarthShare -- your gift supports 70 charities like these that are keeping people healthy, protecting places for wildlife, and reducing global warming, both in Oregon and across the globe.
