The Conservation Fund
At The Conservation Fund, we make conservation work for America. By creating solutions that make environmental and economic sense, we are redefining conservation to demonstrate its essential role in our future prosperity. Top-ranked for efficiency and effectiveness, we have worked in all 50 states to protect 7.8 million acres of land since 1985.
Even if you’re just learning about us, chances are you already know places we’ve protected: national parks, natural areas, storied battlefields, popular getaways, and more. From our first conservation acquisition near Lake Champlain, Vermont, to the working forests that we own and sustainably manage on California’s North Coast today, we have completed over 3,000 projects, achieving conservation priorities from coast to coast.
From day one, we’ve known that conservation is about people, as much as places. Our choices—how we live and work—make a lasting impact on our lands and waters. That’s why we provide loans to small business owners and strategic land trusts, help communities shape plans for growth, train conservation leaders, and more. Together, we can continue to make conservation work for America.
Donate Through Workplace Giving
One of the best ways to support The Conservation Fund is to donate through your workplace giving program (or the Combined Federal Campaign if you're a Federal employee). If your employer does not have a payroll deduction campaign or does not offer the choice of giving to The Conservation Fund, ask about bringing America's Charities to your workplace. America's Charities works with employers to develop employee-friendly, cost-effective workplace giving campaigns that benefit charities like ours.
