Ways to Give
Donations, monthly giving, tribute gifts, sponsor a bird and more.
Your contribution supports our work in promoting the understanding, enjoyment and protection of native birds, other wildlife and their habitats. Together we will build a region where people and wildlife flourish together.
Monthly Giving: Be A Frequent Flyer
Make regular, monthly donations as a member of our Frequent Flyer Club. You will make monthly gifts through automatic bank or credit card withdrawals; these donations give Portland Audubon continued support and help balance our resources throughout the year.
You will receive just one gift acknowledgment in January reflecting your total giving for the year, for your tax purposes; your Frequent Flyer Membership can be suspended or stopped at any time with a phone call or email to our Membership Department. Join online or download a membership form and mail to: Membership Department, 5151 NW Cornell Road, Portland, OR 97210
Remember a loved one with a Tribute Gift and honor their commitment to the Audubon Society of Portland - Tribute Gifts add to our long legacy of conservation and help assure that our work carries forward to future generations. Gifts will be acknowledged through a songbird card sent to the recipient of your choice.
For assistance, call 503-292-6855, x129.
Stocks, Bonds and Securities
A financial tool and a great way to support local conservation, gifts of appreciated stocks and mutual funds offer very useful tax advantages. Benefits: Gifts of shares that you’ve held for more than a year are eligible for the same income tax deduction as a gift of cash; the deduction is based on the fair market value of the shares on the day your broker transfers the stock to the Audubon Society of Portland. Also, if the shares donated have increased in value, you avoid the capital gains tax that you would pay when you sell those shares.
By giving shares, you save twice, first by deducting the gift from your income tax, and secondly by avoiding the capital gains tax. And Portland Audubon gets the same value either way. Always consult your financial adviser for assistance in evaluating the tax advantages available to you when making a donation of appreciated securities. To make a stock transfer to the Audubon Society of Portland, your broker will need the following information:
