Basic Rights Oregon is a 501(c)(4) organization, focusing primarily on policy and legislative changes that contribute to a more fair and equal Oregon. 2007's historic domestic partnership and anti-discrimination legislation are prime examples of the work of Basic Rights Oregon.
Donations to Basic Rights Oregon are the most flexible gifts for us to use, but because we lobby the legislature and hold politicians accountable, these donations ARE NOT tax-deductible.
Contribute to a fairer & more equal Oregon with these different options!
