Travel Oregon, with support from Sustainable Travel International, has developed a statewide program to raise funds for local projects that improve our natural environment, sustain our vibrant communities and enhance Oregon as a travel destination.
They have invited businesses in Oregon to partner with them in this effort, to help generate donations that will pay for these projects.
The pilot phase starts with lodging properties who ask their guests to donate $1 at the end of their stay, which they collect and pass on to Travel Oregon each quarter.
WildSpring is one of the hotels that is supporting this very cool initiative, but we want to start by donating $1 for every stay ourselves.
We also ask our guests to join us with a donation if you would like to support this program as well. You can check a little box on your registration sheet telling us to add $1, $3 or $5 to your invoice for the new Oregon Travel Philanthropy Fund.
Help us keep Oregon the naturally beautiful place to spend your vacations.
Here is a downloadable brochure that talks about the program and the projects it has targeted.
