All we can say is WOW! Thanks to more than 400 donors from the Kestrel community around the Valley, the Promise to the Valley campaign is now complete. Your generosity is so inspiring. Because of you, we exceeded our goal, raising more than $5,600,000 and … we’re still counting!
We’re so grateful to each and every individual, business, and organization that joined with us to make a promise to the Valley. The list below represents gifts received as of June 14, 2022. The campaign officially ended on June 30, but we are still receiving and recording the last gifts as they come in.
As Kestrel launches our next 50 years of service to the Valley, the Promise to the Valley campaign will support:
- CONSERVATION OPPORTUNITIES FUND to conserve 5,000+ acres of woodlands, wildlands, and farmland
- SPECIAL PLACES FUND to care for 7 special places around the Valley, including Kestrel’s new headquarters
- VALLEY TRAILS FUND to create miles of new public trails, greenways, and natural parks
These projects have already begun, and your support is already making an impact. As we continue conserving forests and farms, and creating parks and trails for all, we’ll keep you updated on what your promise is making possible for the Valley you love.
