Travel Oregon Forever Fund

Help us grow the Travel Oregon Forever Fund!

The Travel Oregon Forever Fund provides residents and travelers to Oregon an opportunity to own a piece of the state’s sustainability story by giving to projects that make Oregon a better place live and travel to. Launched in 2012, the Forever Fund has raised more than $100,000 in support of 21 Forever Fund Projects in Oregon.

All of the funding for projects is provided as donations by our Forever Fund Business Partners. Each Forever Fund Business Partner includes donations into the total cost of products and services at point of sale or they make an annual donation based on a percentage of total sales from the year.

By choosing to become a Forever Fund Business Partner you are demonstrating a commitment to protect and improve our state’s tourism economy. You are also choosing to build awareness of the positive impacts that travel and tourism have for Oregon and of how each traveler can turn their Oregon journey into a legacy of giving back. Success is better when it is achieved together and we greatly appreciate your consideration in helping us to grow the Forever Fund.
