Meet Our New Staff

This month, we've been lucky enough to welcome two new eco warriors to the EarthShare Oregon team!

Ally Powell, Donations and Communications ManagerStella Slack, Outreach and Communications Assistant

Ally Powell is our new Donations and Communications Manager. Born and raised in Australia, Ally joins us from New York, where she earned a BA in Anthropology at Sarah Lawrence College. Ally will be processing our donations, managing donor stewardship, and producing our social media content. Be sure to get in touch with Ally if you have pictures to share, events to promote, or ideas about digital collaboration with EarthShare.

Stella Slack is our new Community Outreach and Communications Assistant. Stella will be assisting our Director of Workplace Activities with our workplace engagement program in the mid-Willamette Valley. Feel free to contact her to discuss workplace giving campaigns, corporate volunteering, and green team events.

As the giving season starts up across Oregon, you can help keep Ally, Stella, and everyone else here at EarthShare busy by renewing your generous donations and connecting with us online. For your daily dose of green...

...find us on TwitterFacebook and LinkedIn.


Are You Ready For Our Fall Campaign?

As you can see, change is in the air at EarthShare. It's perfect timing, because we're gearing up for a brand new campaign!

With the fall giving season around the corner, we'd like to recognize the staff at Mountain Rose Herbs for their commitment to workplace sustainability and EarthShare Oregon.

The Mountain Rose Herbs Green Team

Employees at Mountain Rose Herbs participate in monthly Green Team meetings where they promote workplace giving, discuss sustainable business practices and organize volunteer events. They also give generously to environmental causes through EarthShare Oregon, and the company matches every dollar employees donate. In 2016, staff and the company gave almost $14,000 to EarthShare Oregon and its member charities.

This fall, take a leaf out of the Mountain Rose Herbs book and consider contributing to EarthShare Oregon through your organization's workplace giving campaign. Our earliest campaigns begin in September, with Kaiser Permanente and 
State of Oregon leading the charge. In the coming weeks, all of our workplace partners will receive a unique campaign calendar and more information on the giving process. Be sure to watch out for it in your inbox! 

If your workplace doesn't have a giving campaign, feel free to contact  EarthShare's Director of Workplace Activities to establish a partnership or make an individual donation online.

Oh, Yeah... We Made A Video Just For You!

Check Out Our New Video!

A picture tells a thousand words, but our brand new video tells you everything you need to know about EarthShare Oregon.

Throughout Oregon and southwest Washington, we have engaged thousands of people and raised millions of dollars to support Oregon’s environmental legacy of clean water, fresh food, sustainable communities, healthy families, and access to nature.

We want to thank every ecohero who has ever contributed to EarthShare Oregon. Whether you have volunteered at a work party, attended a Green Bag presentation, contributed through a workplace giving campaign or made an individual donation to one of our 100+ member nonprofits, this video is for you.

For the planet,

EarthShare Oregon
