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 and The Conservation Fund is working to build a stronger, more sustainable future.
Our projects combat climate change, feed families and support green jobs. The lands we protect bring communities together, provide critical habitat for wildlife and tell stories about our past. And with pioneering models, we are conserving large, intact working forests at an exciting pace and saving farmland in and around major cities. We believe that the economy and the environment should work together. The convergence of these two powerful forces have distinguished our conservation efforts for the past three decades—protecting over 8.5 million acres across all 50 states—and it continues to move us forward.
Even if you’re just learning about us, chances are you already know places we’ve protected: national parks, natural areas, historic 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.
