Legacy & Planned Giving

Protect the Oregon you love for future generations.

When you include 1000 Friends of Oregon in financial plans that will last throughout, or even beyond, your lifetime, you become a member of our Legacy Club.

If you wish to name 1000 Friends of Oregon in your estate plan, we should be named as:

1000 Friends of Oregon, a nonprofit corporation with principal business address of 133 SW 2nd Avenue, Suite 201, Portland, OR 97204, Federal Tax ID# 93-0642086.

If you wish, 1000 Friends can work with you and your advisors to create a plan that meets your vision. You may also discover that charitable gift planning provides you with an opportunity for income and tax savings.


Every day, the laws protecting Oregon's public spaces and working lands are threatened by relentless pressure from those who would profit from bad development. I support 1000 Friends of Oregon because they are the only statewide organization helping Oregonians to fight these special interests at every turn, and I am including 1000 Friends in my estate plans so that they—and the Oregon I love—will continue long after I've departed.
