Join the Pioneer Circle

Pioneer Circle members each commit to a gift of $1,500 or more. If you’ve already made a gift of up to $1,000 per couple to one of Oregon’s qualifying cultural organizations ($500 for an individual), you can receive a tax credit for this same amount. So a significant portion of your Pioneer Circle gift will cost you nothing, while doing so much for our quality of life here in Oregon!

Any amount above your tax credit will still be considered a tax deductible gift. We’re also delighted to offer you a combination of donor benefits that will recognize your generosity and bring you closer to the work of the Trust.
