UPDATE: We raised over $4,000 in a single day during this year's Give More 24! campaign. Thank you to all the generous donors who helped us fund trees that will leave a lasting legacy on our cherished landscapes.
Here in the Northwest, forests are a way of life. For many, forests offer a livelihood and abundant natural resources. They host campouts, hikes, and outdoor adventures. They offer habitat for wildlife and a place of peace and quiet in an increasingly hectic world.
Forests are foundational to many of Columbia Land Trust’s habitat restoration efforts. Whether we’re restoring spruce swamps in tidal floodplains or fir-and-hemlock forests in the rugged West Cascades, we plant trees to re-wild our landscapes. In fact, we’re currently in midst of an unprecedented effort to plant upwards of 200,000 trees across our conserved lands.
On Thursday, September 22nd, the Community Foundation of Southwest Washington is hosting Give More 24!, an annual day of giving where hundreds of people will go online and donate in support of their favorite causes, including the environment. This is a unique opportunity for people in Southwest Washington to show their love for the local organizations working hard to help improve their communities.
This year, our goal is to raise $3,000—enough to buy 1,000 trees*—in just 24 hours. Throughout the day on September 22nd, we’ll keep you posted on our progress on social media, while at the same time sharing examples of the tree-planting and forest restoration efforts made possible through your support.
Join in the fun and give on the 22nd. You can fund 10 trees for $30, 25 trees for $75, 50 trees for $150—whatever amount is meaningful to you. Thank you.
