We are deeply grateful to our donors and we want you to stay with us long-term. Whether you choose to give money, land, stock, or even an old car, this is our pledge to you:
1) We will express sincere gratitude for your gift, no matter the size.
2) We will steward your gift as carefully as we steward our land and water.
3) We will show you how your gift is making the Northwest better.
4) We will provide you opportunities to deepen your relationship with the Northwest and with us.
Because we’re all in this together; and because land, water, and the natural world don’t just support life, they are life itself.

Give a one-time gift, or better yet, give monthly. Whether you give once or you become an Evergreen Circle member by giving monthly, you’ll receive our Fieldbook publication, invitations to events, and first dibs on our tours and volunteer days. No matter how you choose to give, you’ll receive prompt acknowledgment and gratitude for your gift. Donate today!

Wills, Trusts, and Other Gifts
There are many ways to give to Columbia Land Trust that can deliver benefits to the Northwest and tax benefits to you. This page highlights some of the most common (and easiest) ways to join our Heritage Circle and leave a legacy for the Northwest. If you have questions or are interested in joining our Heritage Circle today, write to Advancement Director Jedidiah Chavez or call him at 360-213-1203.
Businesses and corporations are some of our strongest allies in building thriving, nature-rich communities here in the Columbia River region. Our Corporate Partnerships program offers creative ways for companies to declare their commitment to conservation. We also offer Corporate Sponsorships that provide visibility around our marquee events, including our Wild Splendor Gala, our annual picnic, and our unique slate of tours out on the land.
We wouldn’t be here without landowners who care about the future of the Northwest. We generally focus on conserving larger acreage wildlife habitat. However, even houses and properties that have little conservation value can be donated. (In these cases, we would then sell the property to acquire land that is valuable as habitat or that furthers our conservation goals.) Explore how your property can benefit the Northwest. Learn more about how donating land benefits you and the nature you love, and contact Conservation Director Dan Roix to get the conversation started.
It’s easy to make a gift of stock to Columbia Land Trust—and there are big benefits to you. A gift of appreciated stock allows you to make a larger contribution than a cash donation; it also helps you save on taxes. These instructions contain all the information you’ll need to transfer your stock. If you have any questions or need additional help with your stock transfer, please contact Data Administrator Pete LaRose or call him at 360-567-1571.
Give Through Your Workplace
Many employers offer matching programs or other incentives for charitable giving. Whether you’re an employee looking to amplify the impact of your gift or an employer looking to establish or grow your corporate giving program, we’d love to hear from you. Reach out to Annual Campaign & Foundations Manager Amy McCormick at 360-213-1204.
Donate a Vehicle
Have an extra car, truck, classic car, fleet vehicle, boat, or even an airplane? Great! We’ll take it! With the help of Volunteers of America, we accept all sorts of vehicles for donation (cars, campers, boats, trailers, even with mechanical issues, etc.). We’ll arrange to have it picked up. All proceeds will be a tax-deductible contribution. For more information, email Annual Campaign & Foundations Manager Amy McCormick or give her a call at 360-213-1204. Or just fill out this vehicle donation form.
You can also contribute your time, energy, and expertise as a volunteer, be it outdoors as a site steward or photographer, or inside providing valuable office support. Learn more about ways to get involved with Columbia Land Trust.
