OSPREY, FL (April 25, 2018) Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast launched its new campaign, “Save Wild Places, Be the One” designed to generate pledges of support for land conservation in advance of the community-wide Giving Challenge on May 1 and 2 from noon to noon.
The campaign features a child at play in nature, a central theme of Conservation Foundation as they work to save wild places for future generations. The Giving Challenge provides the opportunity to save the wild with a 1 to 1 match to all donors to Conservation Foundation when they make a gift online during the 24 hour challenge.
Gifts made to Conservation Foundation during the 2018 Giving Challenge support the organization’s current effort to protect an additional 10,000 acres of natural land throughout our region. Donations and matching funds also support stewardship of conserved land and preserves, as well as a wide array of conservation education and outreach.
Conservation Foundation’s campaign, “Save Wild Places, Be the One” encourages donors to visit www.conservationfoundation.com and make a pledge now. Donors will receive a personal reminder call and email on May 1. To give online during the Challenge, visit www.givingpartnerchallenge.org.
The 2018 Giving Challenge is presented by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County with giving strengthened by The Patterson Foundation.
