Invest in Community: Sponsor a Gorge Owned Program

As a community-funded nonprofit organization, Gorge Owned relies on the generous support of our business and individual sponsors to produce robust and impactful programming every year. Please consider a donation or sponsorship package that works for you, and help build sustainable, thriving, connected communities in the Gorge. In return for their support, our business sponsors gain multi-level marketing exposure to a diverse audience spanning the entire five-county region (see “learn more” for full details). Thank you to all of our individual and business sponsors for investing in community and allowing our work to thrive!

The Gorge Energy Challenge

Building on the success of GO! Solar, this exciting climate resilience and energy program will engage local businesses, individuals, and community leaders in lively discussions, educational opportunities, and simple to extensive actions that can be taken at home, work, and in our communities.

GO! Toward Zero Waste

Toward Zero Waste will challenge individuals, businesses, and local leaders across the Gorge to reduce our personal, corporate, and systemic waste footprint, offering practical ways to reduce single use plastics, packaging, e-waste, food waste, and more.

GO! Local Digital Media Campaign

Through beautifully produced films, the GO! Local Digital Media Campaign will celebrate local businesses for their unique efforts to build community, uplift our economy, or minimize their environmental impact.

The Sense of Place Lecture Series

The Sense of Place lecture series is truly a unique cultural asset. While both highly educational and relevant, presentations never fail to entertain, inspire and challenge the audience. A concerted effort is made to host high-quality presenters who are experts in their fields — authors, historians, artists, movers and shakers.

GO! Pay it Forward Program

Invest in community and sponsor basic business membership for a local business that could use a leg up. Your sponsorship allows Gorge Owned to offer marketing support for one year to a local business that may be recovering from an economic setback.
