Donations to the Oregon Veterans' Home - Lebanon

Have you ever wondered how you could give back to those who gave so much? Donating your time or resources to the OVHL is a great way to start.

Your financial donation to the Homes goes towards activities and items that make life more enjoyable for the residents, including: field trips, exercise equipment, refreshments for outings, transportation, medical equipment and supplies, benches, patios, plants, and magazine subscriptions. Donations are also used to assist in the cost of care for those with temporary financial difficulties.

Ways to Donate

Donations are accepted by the below methods, and all donations are tax-deductible.

(We reserve the right to carefully select what donations are accepted and prefer each donation to be in good to best condition for the honor of our veteran residents.
