The Wallowa Land Trust is funded almost exclusively by contributions of all sizes from private individuals, families and small businesses. Because the Trust is a tax-exempt organization, all donations are tax-deductible.
Most of the Trust's budget depends on membership dues and donations from local citizens, as well as numerous Oregonians and others around the nation who care about the Wallowa Country. Many people believe in agriculture and open space values, and find supporting the Trust an effective way to help. Additionally, people throughout the world know the tragic story of Chief Joseph and the Nez Perce people who were driven from their homeland, and want to help protect this landscape so highly valued by Indian people by supporting the Trust.
Besides regular members, the Wallowa Land Trust relies heavily on the generosity of its WallowaLands Society donors, who give $250 or more annually. These larger gifts enable the Trust to be more ambitious and effective in its work, and are deeply appreciated.

That means you can double your contribution to Oregon culture -- you give twice but it only costs you once! To learn more, visit www.culturaltrust.org.
