The Mahoosuc Land Trust is 25! Milestone anniversaries can be a time to reflect on the conservation work the Mahoosuc Land Trust has accomplished for its donors. In honor of the Land Trust’s 25th Anniversary, members Larry Stifler and Mary McFadden have decided it is a time to celebrate by making a generous $25,000 Challenge gift. The challenge to current donors is increase their giving to the Land Trust. Increased giving over 2013 levels will earn equal dollars from the $25,000 Challenge. New donors’ giving will earn first dollar challenge dollars. And to seriously challenge generous gifts, gifts of $1000 or more will earn double challenge dollars.
Please keep the Challenge in mind when you support the Mahoosuc Land Trust through membership and annual appeal. The Land Trust’s work is about conserving land for the public to use and enjoy. We look forward to working for you over the next 25 years.
