JourneyTree believes that to be part of your community, you must support your community. That’s why, over the last several decades, we have been a proud supporter and sponsor of many local organizations:
Friends of Trees
For the last several years, JourneyTree has been a sponsor and participant in planting trees around Eugene.
Since 1989, Friends of Trees has planted over 946,000 trees and shrubs throughout the Pacific Northwest. They do more than plant trees, however, they also have a green space program that focuses on restoring natural areas. They also provide tree care, including watering, pruning, mulching, and regularly assess tree health.
The Eugene Gleemen
Jonathan has been singing with the Gleemen since 1989, and JourneyTree has been a sponsor of this nonprofit choral group since 1993.
The Gleemen men’s choir started up in 1926 and has a long history of providing music to the community. They even represented Oregon in the 1939 World’s Fair. Singing a wide variety of music: pop, country, classical, folk, Broadway, sea chanties, etc., they have a little something for everyone.
Maude Kerns Art Center
JourneyTree has recently begun partnering with Maude Kerns as an exhibit sponsor.
The Maude Kerns Art Center was founded in 1950 and serves the public through major exhibitions, art classes, lectures, workshops, outreach programs, and performances. It is the only nonprofit community center for visual arts in Eugene, and it offers a cooperative studio space for artists to work.
JourneyTree has been an avid supporter of The Shedd’s Oregon Festival of American Music. Jonathan has also served on The Shedd’s board for several years.
The Shedd was established in 1991 as a performance arts company, cultural arts center, and community music school. Seven days a week, they offer a range of activities, performances, and programs.
From planting trees on 18th Street, to sponsoring the “Oregon Bach Festival Radio” program during the pandemic, JourneyTree is always seeking ways to be involved with and give back to the community.
