Land trusts play a critical role in the response to climate change. Is your land trust looking to raise more money to do this crucial work? If so, consider joining our upcoming webinar, “Land Trusts Fundraising for Climate Work,” exclusively offered to land trusts in northern New England.

In September 2019, the Land Trust Alliance (LTA) and the Open Space Institute (OSI) surveyed land trusts in northern New England to assess current levels of climate change engagement. They asked: “What resources do you need to increase climate work?”

The results are in — 54 land trusts in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont responded. Above all else, funding was identified as the most needed resource.

This 90-minute webinar will provide real-world examples and practical ideas of how your land trust can ramp up its climate work. You’ll hear examples of land trusts across the country fundraising around climate with a specific focus on individual, community and foundation giving.

Examples and ideas will include:

  • How to use your communications channels to build a community of giving that views climate change as an integral part of a land trust’s work
  • Planned-giving messaging around climate change
  • Donations of resilient land
  • Project-specific acquisition related to climate change
  • Strategies to tell stories of change that get to urgency and solutions
  • and more

This 90-minute webinar is appropriate for land trusts of all sizes.
