In 2016 the partners of The Confluence started working together to envision a shared space center for environmental organizations in the Willamette Valley. What impact could we have if we co-located, if we shared services, explored collaborative programs, and peer networks?
What started as a vision has become a reality. Five environmental organizations have united in forming The Confluence, which is both a future office center for our organizations as well as a community hub for conservation. Each of the partners retains their own organizational identify, while also joining forces to establish The Confluence, a new nonprofit that will unite our missions and create deeper impact for the betterment of our Valley's precious lands and waters.
Meet the partners who have collaborated to establish this building, and who will be founding occupants of the space.
