Oregon turns 159 years old on February 14, and we’re celebrating by giving back to the state a small thank you for all it’s given us over the years.
As Oregonians, we feel not only a deep sense of pride about where we live, but a commitment to community and sustainability that runs deep. Learn more about the Travel Oregon Forever Fund (formerly known as the Oregon Travel Philanthropy Fund) and explore the stories below to see how travelers are supporting projects that preserve Oregon’s natural landscapes and cultural heritage. Since 2012, the Fund has raised more than $90,000 for project beneficiaries around the state.
For all the cascading waterfalls, the wide open spaces and endless road trips, the campfires under the stars, the sunrises over sparkling lakes and sunsets on the beach, we say thanks, Oregon — and we’ll keep doing our best to ensure you forever remain a place we all love, and love to explore.
