For me, this time of the year results in reflection; and though 2020 has looked and felt very different than any year I’ve known before, it is with gratitude that I’m writing you. With the presidential election now behind us and the transition to the new Administration underway, I’m returning my attention to some of the top priorities for The Conservation Fund.

We live in a fragile environment, and conversations around how it’s changing—and what we’re doing to help—have never been more prevalent. There is a lot to be done, but it’s important to reflect on and learn from the milestones already achieved alongside our partners and supporters as we gear up for 2020. From protecting some of our nation’s cleanest drinking water to conserving habitat for the East Coast’s highest concentration of bald eagles, conservation across America is scaling up and making momentous impacts. Check out our top five highlights from 2019.

But what motivates our donors to give?
