About Us

Another Way Enterprises (A.W.E.) was founded in 2002 in Cottage Grove, Oregon to foster developing projects in and around Cottage Grove. Our projects run the gamut from the arts to the environment to promoting sustainable food sources. It is our goal to assist these groups and their dedicated volunteers who enrich our community.
As an umbrella organization, A.W.E. acts as incubator for small community-based groups focused on
improving life in our town. Along with making it possible for these projects to accept tax-deductible donations, we also provide them with banking services, eligibility for grants, a presence on A.W.E.’s website with links to their own websites and Facebook pages, and the ability to receive donations via PayPal, access to Cottage Grove Chamber of Commerce newsletter and other services under A.W.E.’s membership.
