Landowners may prefer to donate their property to us instead of directly to a public agency. It is possible to stretch the donation and use it to match another project the public agency might persue. By accepting the donation, The Conservation Foundation gives the public agency the time it needs to line up grant funding for its project and enables the agency to do more with less funds. The other benefit? Sometimes landowners are not excited about or willing to donate their land to a government agency. We can accept the donation instead, and work out a transfer to the public agency at a later date.
