The Abbot's Circle is for friends who make annual gifts of $1,000 or more to The Abbey Foundation of Oregon. We have a goal of 1,000 Abbot's Circle members.
Abbot's Circle donations are used to support the education of seminarians, to provide training for young monks and care for senior monks, to preserve our library collection, to renovate existing buildings and to construct new facilities that enable us to increase our service to the church.
