Support the Center

Trail Tenders is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization. All donations are tax-deductible, and are used towards educational and interpretive programs and capital improvements at the National Historic Oregon Trail Interpretive Center.

Celebrate the Trails you’ve Traveled

Commemorative tiles may be purchased and inscribed with the name of an honored friend or family member, or a pioneer ancestor, starting at $175.00. Tiles are on public display in several public locations at the Interpretive Center.

Support School Field Trips

Our “Keep the Change” program helps fund educational field trips through purchases made at the Oregon Trail Shop. Donations can also be designated to the field trip scholarship fund.

Trail Tenders is a recognized cultural organization, and qualifies as a cultural non-profit eligible for the Oregon Cultural Trust matching tax credit. You will receive a receipt for your donation, and can use this to claim a tax deduction on your federal taxes, or a tax credit on your Oregon taxes.
