Help Us Make Our 45th Anniversary Kickoff Matching Challenge!

Thanks to the generosity of three anonymous supporters, each dollar donated to The Conservation Foundation between now and December 31st, 2016 will be matched if we can raise $70,000 by the end of the year.

We will celebrating 45 years of saving the lands and rivers you love in 2017, and two faithful donors wanted to propel us into our anniversary year with a momentum that will poise us for impact, so they offered $45,000 if we could raise the same amount in new money.  Then another donor, inspired by their actions, came forward as well and added an additional $25,000 to the challenge. 

If we are able to meet this goal and raise $70,000 in new money, these three incredible people will together provide an additional $70,000, sending us into 2017 with $140,000 in new funds for our conservation programs.  That could mean the preservation of a whole new parcel of precious natural land, the organization of a new river cleanup, a water quality research project, hundreds more youth reached through our education programs.  The possibilities are endless!

“Our long-term vision is to make conservation a part of the culture in every community,” said our President/CEO Book McDonald. “This generous pledge to double donations through the end of the year will help us continue our work toward that noble goal.”

The one catch is that the money raised has to be "new money", meaning a gift over and above your traditional annual giving if you are already a supporter of The Conservation Foundation.  Whether it’s an additional $10, or $45, $450 or $4500 in honor of our upcoming anniversary, any amount above and beyond your usual gift will be most appreciated.  And if you are not yet a supporter of The Conservation Foundation, it’s a great time to join our collective momentum!  Your entire gift will county towards the match and  will go twice as far to preserve and restore local nature.
