Our Donors Help Us Rise – We Met Our Challenge!!

We Did It!!!

Or more accurately, the more than 300 people who supported our Strengthening Our Foundation
$100K Challenge did it.

Thanks to your generosity, we have met the challenge and the $100,000 you have given will be matched by the Hamill Family Foundation!

We are humbled, inspired and energized by the incredible generosity of the Hamill Family Foundation
and your commitment to and passion for our mission.

Thanks to you, we are leaving this challenging year and entering 2021 stronger than ever before,
poised to be tireless advocates for nature in our region.

We wish you love, peace and joy
this holiday season and in the coming year!

Thank you so much to the Hamill Family Foundation, and to everyone who helped us rise to this challenge!

While meeting this challenge is breathing incredible hope and life into our mission, there will always be more nature
in need of preservation and restoration.

You can still make gifts up to
and beyond the years’ end!  

  • Did you know the CARES Act allows taxpayers taking the standard deduction to deduct up to $300 per filing household for cash charitable contributions made to qualified 501(c)(3) charities during 2020, excluding donor-advised funds, private foundations and supporting organizations?  The Conservation Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and our FEIN number is 23-7221206.
  • Does your employer provide matching gifts?  Due to the ongoing health crisis, many companies are increasing their philanthropy and encouraging their employees to do the same through their matching gifts program.

  • Now may also be a good time to donate appreciated stock.  You can contact Gindi Orloff on our staff at 630.428.4500 x124 or email her for more information.  There is still time to give by the year’s end for tax purposes!
