Oregon’s Future Depends on You!

Did you know that Oregon Environmental Council launched its biggest and boldest fundraising campaign in 2017 to accelerate our progress to protect clean air, clean water and act on climate change? Our goal is to raise $15 million over three years and thanks to our foundation partners and generous Oregonians like you, we’re more than halfway there.

Oregon is a national leader in environmental protection. Over our 50-year history, Oregon Environmental Council has delivered big, bold solutions – from the early years of the Bottle Bill, Bike Bill, and Beach Bill – to becoming the first state to go coal-free and protecting Oregon’s children from toxics in children’s products.  For that, we thank you.

Today, Oregon faces new and unprecedented threats to clean air, water and land. It is time to double down on advancing environmental safeguards. We must act now. Join us in building a future for our state where:

  •      the water is clean and abundant for our many needs,
  •      the air we breathe enlivens our health, and does not threaten our ability to work and play,    and
  •      transportation choices are accessible, affordable and pollution-free.

We invite you to learn more about this campaign, Oregon’s Future Depends on You, and deepen your investment in a better Oregon for all. Every gift counts; in fact, our monthly donors alone contributed $50,000 in 2018! For more information, please reach out to Erin Kane, Director of Philanthropy, at erink@oeconline.org or 971-678-7960. She’d love to hear from you!
