As we prepare this year’s report on 2019 activity, we find ourselves in very different times. The pandemic continues to disrupt our lives – but also provides a reason to be optimistic. Until things return to normal, we can still look forward to enjoying the many conservation areas and natural areas that your donations help to support.
As we reflect and report on the last year, it gives me the opportunity to thank you, our donors, for your continued support of conservation and helping us to ensure natural areas are preserved for now and the future.
This year’s report focuses on legacy – the lasting statements of your generosity that you are providing for future generations. Whether creating or contributing to an existing endowment fund to support a program, including the Foundation in your will, donating a gift of shares, or making the Foundation a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, these legacies will ensure that our natural areas are maintained forever, new natural spaces are protected, and future generations of children will continue to learn and be exposed to conservation through our education programming.
The importance of natural spaces has never been more important. To all of you, the donors who help create and maintain them, thank you!
