We’d like to give a shout out to the many people who donate to Friends of Trees at work.

One of the easiest ways to give to environmental causes at work is through EarthShare Oregon. Would you believe that workplace donations to Friends of Trees through EarthShare Oregon have been nearly $200,000 since 1993?

With your workplace on board (and many companies already are), you can have charitable contributions deducted from your paycheck while still getting the tax benefits of your donation. And many companies will match your gift—doubling the impact.

Though we hope you’ll choose to give to Friends of Trees, there are more than 80 wonderful environmental organizations to choose from in the EarthShare Oregon network—and the list is growing.

EarthShare Oregon also helps employees set up workplace fundraisers, connect with volunteer opportunities, and bring sustainability to their offices through lunchtime “green bag” sessions.

Thank you so much for your support. Not only are you protecting Oregon’s environmental legacy, you are inviting and inspiring others to do the same.
