On Giving Tuesday, help support the Land Trust by creating a social media fundraiser, sharing your stories, or getting outside.

Do you have questions, kudos, or other feedback? Let us know:

Let’s make a BIG impact together this year! Join the Deschutes Land Trust on Giving Tuesday (11/28) to support Central Oregon’s clear streams, rimrock canyons, and ponderosa pine forests—and your gift will be matched! On Giving Tuesday, the Land Trust has the opportunity to raise $65,000 to match $65,000 from the Land Trust’s current and former Board, plus Keith Kelley! That means double the lands conserved, double the lands cared for, double the impact for good!

In order to reach this goal, we need your help! Here are three simple ways you can help:

1. Host a Giving Tuesday fundraiser for the Deschutes Land Trust. Use your Facebook or Instagram to set up your own fundraiser where you ask your friends and family to donate to the Land Trust online. Together, we will launch fundraisers on Tuesday, November 28th. Help us meet our match, broaden our support, and protect the nature of Central Oregon for generations to come.

Setting up your Facebook fundraiser is easy.
Just follow this link: Then customize your title, description, and photos and click 'create' to start sharing your fundraiser! Don't forget to tag us @DeschutesLandTrust so we can all work together toward our goal!

Setting up your Instagram fundraiser is easy too! Just follow these eight quick steps:
Step 1. Log in to Instagram, then click the plus sign at the top to create a new story!
Step 2. Select a photo to share or use the ‘Create’ mode. Bonus: Upload your favorite photo from a visit to a Land Trust Preserve!
Step 3. Click to add a Sticker then choose the Donation Button.
Step 4. Select the Deschutes Land Trust!
Step 5. Create a title for your fundraiser. The auto-created title is “Deschutes Land Trust” and you can add a little information there!
Step 6. Don’t forget to tag us! Tag @deslandtrust in your story and your posts about the fundraiser so we can all work together toward our $65,000 goal!
Step 7. Add any additional notes then post to your story and your fundraiser will go live! We would love for fundraisers to go live on the morning of Tuesday, November 28th.
Step 8. Share your fundraiser as a post on your timeline or a direct message with a personalized note to friends and family you think might also support our cause.

2. Share our Giving Tuesday fundraiser with your friends and family. If you’d rather not create a fundraiser, you can still help! Share the Land Trust’s fundraiser on November 28th by copying the link below and paste it to your social media post, or share via email! Sharing is a proven way to help, and we’ll need all the help we can get to meet our goal this year!

3. Make a donation and double your impact for local conservation!
Donate on Giving Tuesday and your gift will be matched, up to $65,000! Support the Land Trust and double your impact on Giving Tuesday!

If social media and fundraisers aren’t your thing, there are so many other ways to support the lands that you love!

Share your stories! Tell others about the lands you love and why you hope they'll be protected. Do you love the scenic views at Indian Ford Meadow Preserve? Are you proud to know these lands will be protected for future generations? Celebrate the places important to you by sharing your favorite Land Trust memory or experience at a Land Trust Preserve. Sharing these stories inspires us to keep protecting and conserving the nature of Central Oregon together!

Get outside to care for the lands you love. There's no better way to give back to the lands that give us so much than to get outside and care for some of the lands you love. Check out our volunteer page to join us in giving back to the lands or get creative in caring for the places closer to home.

No matter how you give this season, thank you for joining us to protect and care for Central Oregon’s lands and waters!
