Sage Sustainers Membership

James Parsons   Website

Live your values and stand up for Oregon’s desert public lands, waterways, and wildlife when you donate to Oregon Natural Desert Association each month. Sage Sustainers members propel critical conservation efforts alongside a dynamic community of advocates. And, as a monthly donor, your membership won’t expire.

If you want to increase your existing monthly donation, change your payment method or update your credit card information, please email ONDA’s Development Coordinator with your new information and we’ll update your donation accordingly. 

You may set up your ongoing monthly gift with a credit card. Or, better yet, choose a transfer from your bank account. Bank transfers avoid credit card processing fees and expiration dates. Both options for monthly giving are available on our online donation form:

“I find enjoyment in the peaceful wide open spaces, geology, and rich history of Oregon’s high desert,” says Mary.

“I contribute to ONDA monthly because it adds up to a larger annual gift than what I’d be able to comfortably afford if I were to do a simple one-time donation annually. I’m able to give more to ONDA this way and have greater impact which is important to me, and my dog Polly.”

“ONDA stewardship trips inspire me. I get to learn new things and see new places, and in the process perform important work that improves the wildlife habitat.”

“I love to travel and I love the desert! Supporting ONDA
monthly allows me to hit the road without forgetting
Oregon’s high desert- even when I’m not there.”
