#GivingTuesday 2018

Today is #GivingTuesday, and it’s not too late to donate to a cause that’s important to you.  #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.  Donations on Giving Tuesday also make great holiday gifts for the hard-to-buy-for friend or family member.

In honor of this important fundraising day, we thought we’d share some options for giving of environmental concern.  Whether you choose to give locally, nationally, or globally, there’s no doubt that every dollar counts.

Giving Locally – Berks Nature

Berks Nature leads local conservation efforts through contributions from memberships, corporate and private contributions, grants, and partnerships. They do not receive regular funding from a national organization, the government, or tax dollars to run programs.

Berks Nature strongly supports Berks County’s number one industry, agriculture – and – the protection of our special natural areas.  To date, they have permanently preserved over 7,500 acres through conservation easements, acquisitions, and transfers; and have facilitated the protection of an additional 1300 acres in Berks County.

They also have The Nature Place where families can explore, discover and learn through the  beauty of nature.

Giving Nationally – The Sierra Club
