Make a Contribution to the Carousel

The carousel began as the dream of one woman who inspired an entire community to create a work of art that will stand as a symbol of volunteerism and cooperation for generations to come. You can help us keep this dream alive!

Salem's Riverfront Carousel is dependent upon contributions from people like you to make the carousel affordable for all families while supporting our ongoing community events and carousel restoration projects.  

Some donations take place in the present form (e.g. gifts of cash, securities, real estate) while other donations (e.g. wills, life insurance, life income gifts) typically fall into the category of planned gifts.

 Salem’s Riverfront Carousel, a nonprofit organization (501.c.3 ID # 91-1815668), was handcrafted between 1996-2001 and is distinctly Oregon themed with various Oregon state symbols as part of its artistic attraction. All of the items, including the animals were and are ‘adopted’ with sponsorship and support from our local community.  We strive to keep the dream alive by embracing our global community, promoting tourism/volunteerism, providing cultural/educational opportunity/events/programming, and continuing business/agency partnering. Our goal remains to inspire creative living, community cohesiveness, cooperation, diversity, inclusion, imagination and fun, for generations to come!

To help us Keep the Dream Alive, make a donation now.
