Join the Conservancy as a member to support our mission…
…to provide public education on conservation matters and
to protect and enhance the heritage and quality of life of the residents of Morgan County by preserving historic sites, greenspace, farmland, and timberland.
Member participation in the Conservancy is a key component to creating a culture of conservation in Morgan County. Funded only by membership dues and private donations, the Conservancy is 500+ members strong and growing. Because of our members’ annual membership dues, we are able to provide services that our local, state, and federal governments and private industry cannot provide but landowners still find valuable.
Members receive early invitation to our events (Conservation Easement Workshop, Derby Day, Membership Supper), our semi-annual newsletter, and the satisfaction of knowing you are protecting the extensive natural, agricultural, and historic resources in Morgan County for future generations.
Become a Watershed Donor
The Conservancy’s “state of affairs” changed in 2009 when the Waterfall Foundation deemed us worthy of a $50,000 donation providing financial stability for the organization for the first time. We hired full-time staff, which allowed us to expand our programming and increase our fundraising efforts.
We decided to attempt to match the Waterfall Foundation’s contribution by raising $50,000 annually through private donations of $1,000 or more. Those donors are known as Watershed Donors, and they, along with our other members and contributors, support us in working toward our vision.
In 2014, the Conservancy raised $36,600 in Watershed Donor membership.. Our goal is to reach $50,000 in 2015.
We have five months left to reach our goal! Help us match the Waterfall Foundation’s contribution by contributing $1,000 or more in membership dues this year, and join us for a special event in February 2016. Your contribution will be matched dollar for dollar thanks to a few very generous donors.
