In order to take on new projects and meet the expanding needs of our community, we need your support! There are many important ways in which you can make a meaningful gift to the North Shore Land Alliance. From annual gifts that make an immediate impact to endowed gifts that sustain our mission for generations, contributions to the North Shore Land Alliance help to make positive changes in our community.
North Shore Land Alliance relies on the support and generous donations of our community. Your donation will ensure that we are able to purchase the lands that matter most, maintain the open spaces already owned and provide valuable educational programs.
The Land Alliance works closely with landowners to employ an increasingly diverse and flexible number of land conservation tools, including but not limited to conservation easements, to ensure that the lands we cherish are conserved in perpetuity.
Education is a core part of our mission and integral to helping community members understand the benefits associated with the preservation of Long Island’s land and waters and the important role land conservation plays in ensuring a healthy quality of life.
Government funding for land acquisition, particularly in Nassau County, has decreased significantly. If the Land Alliance is to be successful in protecting priority lands when they become available we must have the funds on hand to take credible and rapid action.
One of the most powerful ways to sustain our mission is to build endowments in support of conservation, stewardship, leadership, general operations and education. Planned giving is an essential part of endowment building and the Land Alliance’s future.
At many of our properties, we are responsible for general maintenance and upkeep of the land. This involves significant costs for purchasing equipment, tools, and even vehicles, and costs associated with new planting efforts and removing invasive species.
