Sauvie Island Center
How they are participating
What grows on a farm? We believe kids do. At the Sauvie Island Center we offer elementary school children an opportunity to explore a real, working farm. Our hands-on, place-based curriculum was designed in partnership with local teachers, and supports public school science benchmarks. More than 60% of students visiting the Sauvie Island Center attend high-poverty schools and are only able to visit through the support of our scholarship program. On Giving Tuesday, we are encouraging Portlanders to contribute $14 to $375 to the Sauvie Island Center. Fourteen dollars covers the cost of sending one child on a field trip to the Center. Three hundred and seventy five dollars covers expenses for an entire class, including transportation. Help us make farms a part of more kids’ lives and contribute today.

We'll send them a holiday note letting them know that you've contributed in their name.
