support us

Your support today will help us work for a healthy Middle Fork watershed.  Your donation will help kids access quality outdoor education through our Rangers and Stewards programs, protect valuable habitat through our restoration projects, and share the joy of our watershed through Discover Your Watershed events.  Keep reading to find out how you can help.



Individual donors are the heart of our organization, funding local restoration projects, landowner education, monthly events and tours, stewardship opportunities and watershed science-based school programming.  We are happy to accept one-time or reoccurring donations through our secure online donation form. Personal checks can also be made out to Middle Fork Willamette Watershed Council. Donations can be made in someone else’s name to honor holidays, anniversaries or achievements – we will gladly send a special acknowledgement of your gift with a Beautiful Oregon card!

A bequest is a gift from your estate—a transfer of cash, securities, or other property made through your estate plans. A  bequest can be made for a specific amount, for a percentage of your estate, or for all or a portion of what is left after you have made bequests to your family. You can also name the Middle Fork Willamette Watershed Council as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy, and designate your gift to a specific purpose or project. Planned contributions help to sustain and strengthen the future conservation and restoration in the Middle Fork Willamette watershed, keeping your legacy within our local communities.

Some of the advantages included with planned giving include:

  • There is no immediate cost but provides security in preserving the future of natural resources in our communities
  • You retain control of and use of your assets during your lifetime
  • You may modify your gift if at any time your circumstances change
  • Planned gifts are exempt from federal estate taxes
