Confluence is Yours!

November 8, 2017

Become a Friend or Legacy Maker of Confluence today.

What an amazing year it's been for this important work of connecting people to place through art and education. Just look at the numbers:

*1,150 students worked with 10 Native artists in Confluence in the ClassrooM

*450 audience members joined 6 Confluence Story Gatherings

*150 volunteers scrubbed, swept and mulched at Confluence artworks

*90 curious learners went on 6 Native Plant Walks

*12 native elders and leaders shared their stories on video for future generations

It's also a pivotal time to be doing this work. This year, the State of Oregon joined Washington in taking the major step of requiring Native education in schools. Which means the demand for the Native educators Confluence works with is higher than ever.

We have accomplished so much together to make these amazing sites come alive. We are also poised to take our programming to the next level. That's why I ask you to make a donation to the Confluence Annual Appeal today to help reach more kids and more community members in 2018.

Please do your part to connect kids with a more inclusive history of our land and build a stronger stewardship of our shared ecology.

As you give to the Annual Appeal today to support the life-enriching work of Confluence, please consider becoming an ongoing monthly contributor to ensure the success of these important programs long into the future. Thank you!
