A Generosity Movement
Let’s Build Community, together!
Why Give to IVCanDO?
Innovation and Creativity
We are an organization unlike any other in the Illinois Valley! We are problem solvers, solution finders, and work every day to tailor our programs to the needs of our community. If we can’t find a solution – we create it!
Our Cans for Kids program was created to help fund youth programs in our area that needed help fundraising – and since it started, we have distributed over $150,000 with the help of generous donors, dedicated volunteers, and partnerships with the Oregon Beverage Recycling Cooperative and Southern Oregon Sanitation.
VISION, PLANNING, AND THINKING BIGGER
The programs and projects we bring to our community aren’t simply random – we are planners, dreamers, and strategizers. We make sure our time, energy, and funds are well-spent and sustainable. And of course, improve the lives of all of us!
Our work at Rough and Ready Botanical Area is a prime example of realizing our vision. During Phase 1, we widened and lengthened the trail. Phase 2 included interpretive signage along the trail to educate visitors about the area. Phase 3 will include paving the parking lot to increase accessibility to the area even more!
CONNECTIONS AND NETWORKING
We believe in the Power of Partnerships – both with our community and other organizations that help us meet our goals. Our partnerships with other organizations and businesses in our area and throughout the entire State of Oregon are strong, which allows us to bring resources and opportunities to our area.
Small business owners in the Illinois Valley know firsthand how beneficial our commitment to valuable partnerships are. We have partnered with Energy Trust of Oregon and the City of Cave Junction to install efficient lighting and security cameras at 20 businesses along the 199 corridor. We also have brought valuable business education to small business owners through our partnership with Reinventing Rural.
