Giving Tuesday 2022

Double Your Gift to Skagit Lands and Waters on Giving Tuesday

Mark your calendars for November 29th

On Giving Tuesday (November 29th) our community will be coming together to make a difference in the world around us. This special day encourages each of us to unite, do good, and exercise generosity. Your donation to Skagit Land Trust during Giving Tuesday will make a positive impact on nature in the Skagit. It will protect places for wildlife. It will connect the next generation with lands they care for.

Your gift on November 29th will go further! All gifts during Giving Tuesday will be doubled thanks to a $25,000 match.

2023 will be an important year in Skagit Land Trust’s history. You can have a huge impact on the coming year by making a gift during Giving Tuesday.

Want to make your gift go even further? Rise to our Skagit Sustainer Challenge!

For our 30th Anniversary year, we are looking for 30 new Skagit Sustainers, who make a recurring monthly or quarterly gift to the Trust. Ongoing gifts of any amount from sustaining members allow the Trust to have funds on hand when the chance to save a special place arises.

Thanks to a generous match from a Trust board member, we also have a dedicated $6,000 match for all new Skagit Sustainers gifts. Your recurring donation will be doubled for the value of your full year of giving and go twice as far to protect and care for lands in the Skagit in the year to come.

Giving Tuesday is about looking for ways to support the causes you care about and help your community. Here at Skagit Land Trust, one of our goals is to inspire the next generation to care about the natural lands of the Skagit. We do this by bringing students out to learn on Trust lands, and by supporting other organizations in the community with their efforts to connect the community to the outdoors.

Skagit Land Trust is also partnering with the Mount Vernon Parks & Recreation Department on their “Explore Outdoors” Backpack program.

These backpacks will include Skagit Land Trust’s new field guide on the plants and animals of the Skagit along with supplies for families to explore nature close to home. When you donate $100 or more to Skagit Land Trust on Giving Tuesday, we’ll donate a field guide to the backpack program. Our goal is to have member support for 100 field guides. This is a great opportunity to support two organizations working to connect and educate the community on the importance of natural spaces.

During this season we take time to reflect on what we are grateful for. Here at Skagit Land Trust, we are grateful for you. Thanks to your membership support, critical natural lands in the Skagit will be here for generations of people and wildlife to enjoy. Thank you!

Interested in making a gift of stock, from your IRA, or a Donor Advised Fund? Many members have found this to be a smart and tax-savvy way to support land conservation here in the Skagit. You can learn more about these giving options on our website, skagitlandtrust.org, or by emailing Laura Hartner, laurah@skagitlandtrust.org.
