Three Reasons to Give

April 9, 2019

Our 2019 Spring Appeal is underway! It’s your opportunity to become a Friend of Confluence for the first time or to renew your support by donating to our mission: to connect people to the history, living cultures and ecology of the Columbia River system. We need your help! This is important work and it can only happen with the support of Friends like you. 


If you’re already a Friend of Confluence, thank you! If not, here are three reasons to give:

Education: Confluence connects students and teachers with Native artists and educators to dig deeper into the long history of the landscape we love through Indigenous cultures that live on today.

Public Understanding: Confluence’s community events such as the Story Gatherings elevate the perspectives of Native writers, thinkers and leaders in our collective understanding o the Columbia River system. 

Conservation and Stewardship: Confluence sites by celebrated artist Maya Lin are designed to last for generations. That can only happen through careful preservation by volunteers, landscapers and artisans.
