Make a Donation to the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center & Museum

The Columbia Gorge Discovery Center and Museum is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Many people are surprised to learn we are an independent organization and receive no funding from state or federal tax dollars. We are funded by admissions, store sales, memberships, donations, facility rentals, and events.

Each and every contribution helps us to carry out our mission to inspire appreciation and stewardship of the Columbia River Gorge and Wasco County through collection, preservation, and interpretation of cultural and natural history resources.

Contributions support educational programming, exhibits, heritage collections care and management, raptor education, and much more. Donations may be restricted to specific areas, or support general operations. As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, donations are fully tax deductible within the limits of state and federal law.

Your financial gift is deeply appreciated.
