Double Your Impact In Our Year End Matching Gift Challenge!
Donate to the Resource Conservation District of Santa Cruz County to help protect and enhance the land, water, soil, and wildlife in Santa Cruz County. Between now and December 31, every dollar you donate will be doubled up to $20,000 by an anonymous matching donor.
For over 80 years, the Resource Conservation District’s experienced team has worked to get collaborative conservation on the ground across a diverse range of people, landscapes, and projects; from restoring habitat for endangered species to improving water efficiency on farms to planning for long-term coastal resiliency to recovering from and preparing for natural disasters. The climate crisis makes our mission even more urgent. With only 2-5% of our budget coming from local taxes, we rely almost entirely on private donations, competitive grants, and service contracts to provide these critical services to our community. Your contribution will help ensure that our county is a place where natural resources and the communities and economies that depend upon them are thriving and resilient into the future. You can donate now online OR if you wish to send a check please use the mail-in donation form below. If your employer participates in Benevity, consider making your donation through that platform to secure your company match. Your donation and company match will both be doubled!
