By Lori Fernand, Associate Director of Philanthropy, The Trust for Public Land:
We’re not done yet! While we’ve successfully secured state and town funding, we still need to raise $1.136 Million more to reach the $10 Million goal by December 2014. The campaign goal includes funds to purchase and protect the land, campaign and program costs and funds for management of the land.
You can help us succeed by spreading the word to neighbors and friends and donating! We recently sent a mailer to all households in the area requesting contributions. The response has been wonderful! Over 185 new gifts have been made through the mailing. Donations can be made online by clicking here. Checks may also be sent to The Trust for Public Land, 101 Whitney Avenue, 2nd Floor, New Haven, CT 06510. Please include “The Preserve” in the memo line. If you are interested in making a gift of stock, please call me at 203-777-7367, ext. 6. All gifts are tax-deductible.
We have almost achieved the vision of a permanently protected Preserve. Please help us to make this dream a reality!
