Giving Tuesday Now with the Eugene Tree Team

In this time of uncertainty, there’s a fundamental truth that gives us hope: together we can do extraordinary things. Friends of Trees knows this so well since that’s what we do: We plant trees. Together. And to keep doing that, to ensure trees + community are in our future, we need your help – can we count on you, if you are able, to donate to Friends of Trees Eugene today? Not only will donations plant trees + grow community, the first $1,250 will be matched by our good friends at Journey Tree Financial – thank you!

Over the past few weeks and months, the entire world has been coming together to stand up, help out, give back, and heal. Whether that’s through donations to community organizations, celebrating doctors and nurses at shift changes, or reaching out to a neighbor to help with groceries, generosity has been helping the entire world get through this global pandemic. Together.

Friends of Trees Eugene is part of #GivingTuesdayNow and we invite you to join us. Giving Tuesday Now with the Eugene Tree Team is a virtual, day-long social media event featuring Tree Talks, LIVE tree walks, and more!

‘Tis Give!Guide Season!

Willamette Week’s Give!Guide runs November 1 through December 31st and is a great way to learn about organizations that are doing amazing work on behalf of people, places, critters and causes (including trees + community, of course ;). G!G features Big Give Days when donors are entered to win fabulous incentives like Trail Blazers tickets, vacation packages, and more.

 

 

 

G!G donors to Friends of Trees also get delicious incentives from our generous partners! $10+ donors get a free slice from HOTLIPS Pizza and – new this year! – the first 300 donors of $25 or more get a pint of beer at Level Beer (plus that slice).

Thank you for doing good!
