Golden Crane Recognition Society

Making an Extraordinary Impact

The Golden Crane Recognition Society is made of donors who give a total of $1500 or more annually through membership dues, tribute gifts, general donations, in-kind donations, and more. These gifts ensure Portland Japanese Garden’s immediate and long-term vitality. Recognition in this society indicates the extraordinary impact these contributions have on the Garden’s holistic operations.

As a token of our gratitude, we will periodically extend special invitations to individuals and organizations recognized in the Golden Crane Society. These invitations are above and beyond the benefits affiliated with Portland Japanese Garden memberships.

Gifts recognized through the Golden Crane Recognition Society are gifts of
hope for the Garden’s future.
