  • Branch out conservation for everyone through with our diverse by design outings and community gardens in southwest Santa Rosa.
  • Grow community in nature through hundreds of opportunities each year for people to heal the land and be healed by the land through our robust stewardship programs on our own preserves and partner properties.

Gift of Stocks and Securities

Giving appreciated investments (shares of stock) is an excellent way to both support our mission and potentially save on your taxes. Donors take a deduction for the full market value (with some limits) and don’t pay capital gains on the appreciation.

Give from your IRA or Retirement Plan

Make an IRA charitable rollover disbursement. If you are over 70-1/2 your gift counts towards your minimum mandatory distribution, and is reduces your taxable income by the value of your gift.
