Why Monthly Giving?

Monthly (or quarterly) giving creates a dependable stream of funds that keeps the Feather River Land Trust vital and strong, so together we can keep conserving and caring for these lands we love.

Our core support (programs, staff and operations) is paid for by friends like you and family foundations--not the federal government. And because of YOU, FRLT continues to be a progressive, effective, and stable Land Trust serving the Feather River region.

Join Sandy's Circle by signing up for monthly giving today!

The older I get, and the more I observe, the more I see that if we don't do something now, how rapidly wildlife habitats disappear. We have to do something now to conserve the dwindling habitats for the creatures and migratory birds that are counting on these lands for food and life, like the Sandhill Crane.

To me giving $25 here and $50 there to all of the good causes at the end of the year is not as effective as choosing something and putting it in your budget.

There are always opportunities to give, but becoming a sustaining member enables Feather River Land Trust to know what income they can count on for the year. It's a way to align my giving with my values.

I am in constant awe of the unique and gripping majesty that is the Feather River region. The Feather River Land Trust’s mission to care for and protect the special lands in the watershed in perpetuity is why I became a Land Trust member.

They effectively honor and promote ecological and cultural heritage through conservation, restoration, and educational programs.

The Land Trust's efforts not only restore land and water, but peoples’ relationship with the land as well.

Why do we give to FRLT? Because we believe in the mission and share the values of FRLT and we want to support the work it does to conserve, protect and restore landscapes within the watershed.

It's important to us that we help sustain the land trust, so it can continue to do the great work it’s done for the past 19 years. 

Also important to us is that our grandkids get to experience the gifts of nature that we've been so fortunate to be surrounded by for the past 40 years. 


Your dollars go far and directly to what you care about—ensuring this landscape is healthy and resilient for current and future generations. Thank you.
