Ways to Give

Every contribution brings us closer to achieving a more equitable future.
Here are ways you can help:

GIVE TODAY

Cash donations are the simplest, most direct way to support the MESA. We accept checks and online donations. To learn more about giving cash donations, please visit our Donate page.

MAKE A PLEDGE

Arranging future gifts, with pledge periods of up to five years, is a great way to spread out payment and tax deductions. To learn more or get started, contact us.

GIVE A MATCHED GIFT

Many employers offer matching gift programs for charitable contributions by employees and retirees, enabling you to significantly increase your contribution to Oregon MESA. Contact us about enrolling your company.

SPONSOR AN EVENT

MESA hosts a variety of student and community facing events and competitions, including MESA Day, Demo Day, and our annual fundraisers. Sponsorships support event hosting costs including food and facilities rentals. Sponsorships also offer companies the opportunity to highlight their brand while supporting the mission of MESA. Contact us to learn more.

DONATE SUPPLIES & EQUIPMENT

The key to an engaging learning experience is having the tools and equipment to turn ideas into reality. MESA students use laptops, tablets, microcontrollers, 3D printers, and other equipment to create their products. To learn about donating supplies and equipment to MESA, contact us.

PURSUE PLANNED GIVING

Make your mark on our community with a planned donation, which creates a personal legacy while often providing significant current and/or estate tax benefits. Contact us to discuss this giving option.
