Agreements with Nonprofits
During the 2013 regular session, the Oregon Legislative Assembly passed Senate Bill 196 and Governor John Kitzhaber signed it into law. The law enhances the ability of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department to connect with individual, private, and corporate donors by allowing it to enter into agreements with qualifying nonprofit organizations who can then, in turn, solicit gifts, grants, and donations improve Oregon's state park system. The law permits the department to provide promotional items such as park passes, brochures, merchandise, promotional space on our website, office or meeting space for events and activities intended to raise funds for the benefit of the department.

In order to create an agreement, drafts are sent to the legislative assembly for a 30 day comment period, acted on by the Oregon State Parks and Recreation Commission, and signed by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department director.
