Stewardship Endowment Campaign

We are building an endowment of $1.2 million.  You can learn about this important effort on this page.

The Goal

The Stewardship Endowment Campaign was created to secure a long-term future for the important natural resources in the Genesee River watershed that the Genesee Valley Conservancy was formed to preserve and protect.

The Purpose

Some of the most important natural habitats, open spaces, and productive farmland in the Genesee Valley have been protected by landowners.  The Stewardship Endowment will help ensure the Genesee Valley Conservancy has sustaining funds to keep these places protected.

The Need

Twenty-five years of conservation success has resulted in a large annual stewardship responsibility. The cost of stewardship may soon limit our ability to protect new places.

The Future

Interest and dividends from the Stewardship Endowment will support ongoing land management and stewardship, freeing annual fundraising to protect new places. Much has been accomplished since 1990, but there are still critical properties unprotected and landowners ready to work with the Conservancy.

Your Support

will increase the pace of conservation in the Genesee Valley.  Once lost to development, land is lost forever.  Help ensure that critical habitat, recreational lands, and productive soils are set aside and remain intact for future generations.
