Make a 2-for-1 Natural Investment This Summer!
Invest in the beautiful lands and waters of the Blue Ridge Mountains and foothills this summer and watch your dollars double during Foothills Conservancy’s 2015 Blue Ridge Foothills Protection Challenge.
Between now and August 31, your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar,
doubling your impact and helping us reach our $60,000 goal!
Other generous donors, the von Drehle Corporation of Hickory and an anonymous individual, have pledged to match up to $30,000 in gifts during this time.
Your gift – doubled during the Challenge, will help Foothills Conservancy continue protecting our extraordinary region, much of which was identified in a new 2015 National Academy of Sciences study as the number one priority for the expansion of conservation in the entire United States! The study confirms that the Southern Blue Ridge Mountains are among the most biodiverse places in the country and home to plants and animals found nowhere else in the United States, and in some cases the world.
We are forever thankful for our donors, who invest in land and water conservation, which ensures that future generations can experience this unique region.
Last year, our donors made possible the formation of Foothills Conservancy’s new 91-acre Smith Cliff/Henry Fork Preserve. This state-significant natural area will remain a haven for wildlife and a source of clean water.
