5 gifts that are unique and oh-so Oregon!

Whether you're looking to spice up your gifting game, or want to give something with meaning - you're in luck - because we have 5 gift ideas that help you give back to Oregon and you don't even have to brave the cold.

1. Gift a Donation

Did you know that you can gift an Oregon Wildlife Foundation donation?

You can make a donation of any size in honor of another. This is the perfect one-size-fits-all gift!

Donate in the name of a friend or co-worker you may not know too personally - OR - donate for the one you have loved for years. Giving back to Oregon's natural world is a special gift for anyone.

You will receive an email confirmation of the donation, and they will be recognized in our Annual Newsletter. Donations to our Foundation are tax-deductible and support our mission.

2. Gift a beautiful Watch for Wildlife plate

Our wildlife animal safety initiative, the Watch for Wildlife specialty license plate, is a long term solution for sustaining wildlife passage projects. The Watch for Wildlife plate design isn't just iconic to Oregon (featuring Mt Hood and deer), but also funds projects that specifically protect animal crossings in migration corridors. Proceeds of this plate come back to our Foundation, not the state or any other agency. OWF has been conserving Oregon's wildlife since 1981 and we want to ensure safty for all animals. Any driver will appreciate this gift!
