American land that needs protection is disappearing rapidly, and our use of natural resources today is not sustainable. We must act now to conserve the natural resources vital to our—and our children’s—future prosperity. Given the scope of the challenge to protect America's natural resources, the Fund needs to scale up its work exponentially to keep pace with destruction of natural ecosystems, large-scale landscapes and to engage more Americans in conservation.
Do we need additional capital? Absolutely. The Conservation Fund has built a very strong balance sheet, but we keep that money busy. With most of that money in use at any given time, to grow our programs thoughtfully, we need additional capital that is dedicated to making conservation work for America.
We appreciate the continued support of our current donors and partners and look forward to proving the strength of our business model to new supporters.
