How To Help

There are three ways to help us accomplish our mission and goals – becoming a member, making a donation, and/or volunteering time and expertise for a specific project.


By becoming a member you help to strengthen the organization both financially and through your volunteerism. You will also:

  • Learn about the people and culture of Ethiopia;
  • Meet others who share an interest in fostering Corvallis’ relationship with Gondar;
  • Help plan and develop projects to improve the quality of life for people living in Gondar; and
  • Have an opportunity to host visitors from Gondar and to represent Corvallis as a delegate to Gondar.


Donations are tax-deductible and can be designated for specific purposes. Any amount is welcome. Donations may be sent to:

Corvallis-Gondar Sister Cities Association
P.O. Box 424
Corvallis, OR 97339-0424

Participation in Specific Projects

Some people may opt not to become members but have expertise and an interest in volunteering for specific limited-duration projects. This type of assistance is also welcome.
