Alliance Board Votes to Raise Four Million in Capital

October 20, 2010 | Washington, D.C.

At its annual Rally meeting, the Alliance board voted to raise the necessary $4 million in start up capital from foundations and individuals to fund the proposed conservation defense insurance program. Your land trust still has time to join the over 450 land trusts from 47 states committed to the program. See who’s committed in your state.

“It is really exciting to see the land trust community come together on these important issues!” says Jesse Leddick, senior conservation associate of the Pacific Forest Trust (CA).

The three-year timeline for the proposed conservation defense insurance program, if successful and if the Alliance board continues to vote to proceed at each step, may have the proposed program starting in 2013.

If you know of someone that may be willing and able to give to this critical national conservation effort, please contact us.

Support from land trusts

Christian Freitag, attorney-at-law and executive director at Sycamore Land Trust (IN), says "I view Conservation Defense Insurance as another step the land trust community is taking to keep our promises. We claim that we will help people protect their land in perpetuity. With this program, the public can be more confident than ever that we take that commitment seriously."


Greg Gamble, executive director at Ojai Valley Land Conservancy (CA), says that "this is one of the most helpful things that the Land Trust Alliance could attempt for its members, and I have greatly appreciated the professional, thoughtful, fair and inclusive process that you have led."
