Avalonia relies on donated funds to fulfill our conservation mission. Although we routinely apply for and are awarded public and private grants toward land acquisition, generous individual and corporate donations are still vitally important; they enable us to meet at least half of our operating expenses.

All but a small percentage of funds are applied directly to the preservation and maintenance of Avalonia’s preserves and to the education of the public about the importance of open space. Likewise, your gift enables you to participate in land conservation and get the satisfaction of knowing that your actions are promoting environmental protection.

All donations to Avalonia, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, in cash or in kind, are tax-deductible to the extent permissible by law.

What’s the difference between a donation and a pledge?

A donation is a one-time tax-deductible cash gift; a pledge is a promise of a gift or several gifts allotted over time. Pledges let us know how much money we can count on, help us qualify for a conservation bridge loan, and help us get matching grants.
