If you would like a donation receipt e-mailed to you, please contact us at Please note that Willamette University is unable to include the estimated value on the donor receipt.

Willamette Community Resource Program (WUCRP)

The SOAR Center also has a donation collection program, the WU Community Resource Project (WUCRP). Modeled off of the Ashland Food Project, WUCRP eliminates any logistical barriers that prevent staff and faculty from donating to the SOAR Center. Each donor receives a reusable bag to fill up at the beginning of each month. On the first Monday of the month, SOAR Center Coordinators come to each donor’s place of work on campus and collect the donations. This is a simple and sustainable way to contribute to our Willamette community. To sign up to contribute to this program, fill out this form.

We also accept monetary donations.
