Central Oregon Gives


The needs in our community are great. Affordable housing. Disability services. Animal rescue. Meals for seniors and children. Protection of wildlands. And for each need, there’s a nonprofit leading the charge. Central Oregon Gives is your holiday giving connection to these amazing organizations, which are funded by donations from regular people just like all of us.

Central Oregon Gives is the very best place to give around the holidays because every donation you make is a chance for your favorite nonprofits to earn even more through matching grants. PLUS you’ll get special thank you for every donation over $25 from our generous incentive sponsors. A free pint of beer just for being a caring community member? Yes, please!
