The Forum welcomes all donations including money, books, electronic media, and family tree research publications (donation priorities). A receipt for any donation is provided for your records and possible tax deduction. The forum is a non-profit 501c(3) organization, and the value of any donation is considered 100% tax deductible. Donations of money should be made payable to The Genealogical Forum of Oregon Inc. You may direct such gifts either to the General Fund or to the ENDOWMENT FUND. If undirected, they will be placed in the general fund to address current priorities. Please contact Liz Stepp for questions or if you would like to make a special gift.
ENDOWMENT FUND: This fund was established to address unusual and high priority activities or facilities needs having long term value to the organization, and is managed for long-term growth by a special committee. The Fund also provides an annual disbursement of money to the general fund based on investment earnings. Growth of the endowment through gifts and bequests is a high priority of the GFO Board.

CULTURAL TRUST OF OREGON: The GFO is listed as a qualifying Oregon non-profit by the Cultural Trust of Oregon. The Trust provides additional tax advantages to Oregon residents who donate to the GFO, because a matching gift to the Trust is treated as a tax credit.
