“It feels good to support ONDA on a monthly basis, because I know they never stop supporting our public lands. ONDA works to help make our lands a better place for the future, and I feel like I’m a part of that every month with my support.”

“I connect with Oregon’s high desert through my feet, my eyes, my sense of smell, and all the things I hear. Getting out there is a whole body experience.” Supporting ONDA, Helen says, not only connects her with wild landscapes, but is also a good investment. “I felt like if I gave them $20, they might squeeze $23 out of it.”

So proud of ONDA and its members and volunteers. Such hard work gets done. To use an overused word, this is patriotism!

Membership Benefits

When you donate to Oregon Natural Desert Association, you become part of a community of individuals who share your passion for conservation. And, your voice is amplified on the conservation issues that matter most to you.

In addition to addressing critical conservation needs, your membership gives conservation concerns more clout. More people working together equals more effective advocacy. That’s why it’s important that every person who cares about the future of our public lands joins our community.

  • A complimentary Wild Desert Calendar mailed to you each November
  • A subscription to Desert Ramblings, our tri-annual newsletter that offers deep-dives on current conservation campaigns, suggests high desert hikes, and more
  • Special event invitations, opportunities to take action, and first crack at our popular restoration work trips

In addition to joining or renewing your membership, there are many other ways to bolster conservation in Oregon’s high desert, including making a monthly gift, a gift of stock, or a planned gift. Read on for details.

Oregon desert conservation is strengthened by the generosity of our members and supporters. Giving an ONDA membership as a gift is a great way to fuel vital conservation work. You can also make a donation in honor of a loved one.

Give a gift

Donate Stock

Giving appreciated stock to Oregon Natural Desert Association is a relatively simple process with some advantages over giving cash. Your gift avoids capital gains tax, and you gain a charitable deduction. And, you may be able to make a larger gift in support of critical high desert conservation needs than you ever thought possible.

ONDA has an account ready to receive your donation of stock, and our staff is available to help. Most banks and brokerage firms require a letter of instruction; some have a special form.

Email Allison Crotty or call (541) 330-2628 for additional information.
