Illinois Valley Watershed Council is a non-profit 501 C-3, funded by donations and grants. 

There are several ways to help us continue our work here in the valley. We encourage you to participate in one or more of the following programs!

The button on the right of this page will take you directly to our donation page. There you can choose what type of donation is best for you.  There are one-time, monthly and "Round-Up" donations.  What's a "Round-Up"? A "Round-Up" donation is the easiest of all donation types. You simply choose a debit or credit card that you normally purchase with, and your purchase will round up to the next full dollar amount, sending the change to the Illinois Valley Watershed Council. It's that simple! You can set a maximum donation amount for those months where you use your card more often, and your round ups will stop once that threshold is hit. Easy-peasy and practically pain-free!

May contain: plastic bag, plastic, bag, and diaper


BottleDrop Gives is a program that allows registered non-profits to deposit refundable cans and bottles donated by supporters. IVWC has special blue bags available for you to fill up with your Oregon refunable beverage containers. Stop by our office at 331 E. Cottage Park Dr Suite 1B to pick up a few bags! You can drop them off yourself (just be sure to grab a label) or bring them back to us for transport to Grants Pass. If you have your own Bottle Drop account, you can donate funds directly from your account by logging in and searching Illinois Valley Watershed Council, then transfering your funds directly into our account.
