Donations & Volunteers
How to Make a Contribution
Please note: United Way of Linn, Benton, and Lincoln Counties announced today it has established a dedicated fund to meet the needs of vulnerable community members and the nonprofits that serve them in the face of the recent wildfires in Linn and Lincoln Counties.
United Way's Emergency Fund will provide flexible resources to non-profit partner organizations in our region working with communities who have been impacted or displaced and the economic consequences of this disaster. 100% of dollars raised will directly benefit individuals - recognizing the need to serve our community, United Way will cover all administrative fees associated with this fund. Donate now to the wildfire emergency fund.
Consider donating to a verified disaster relief organization that is actively responding or will be in the coming days and months. For a list of disaster relief organizations, visit Orvoad.org.

Stay Safe While Volunteering!
- Wash hands regularly, disinfect surfaces regularly, avoid direct contact with others whenever possible, avoid touching your face, and practice good hygiene.
- If you are feeling ill or exhibiting symptoms, stay home! In times of distress, the work of a healthy volunteer is vital, but personal health and safety are always of primary importance.
- If you are experiencing a fever, a cough, and shortness of breath, consult with a doctor or medical professional immediately.
- Volunteers belonging to the most vulnerable populations should consider rescheduling commitments or considering virtual alternatives to their regular, in-person volunteer activities.
