NWALT Joins #GivingTuesday

One-Day Event to Raise Donations for Land Conservation in NWA

2016-gt-logo-wdate1The Northwest Arkansas Land Trust is excited to join the #GivingTuesday movement, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Occurring this year on November 29, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.

We have joined #GivingTuesday in order to encourage our supporters and the community to rally around land protection at a time when natural landscapes in the region are at risk of disappearing forever. We are dedicated to saving land in our growing region by working with landowners and community partners to find win-win solutions for conservation, protecting wildlife habitat, clean water, clean air, and places for people to enjoy the outdoors.  And as an accredited land trust, you can be sure the lands entrusted to us will be protected forever.  But we can’t do our work without the financial support of our community.

When you support your local land trust, your money will stay right here in Northwest Arkansas, preserving the special places that matter most to you and the people of our region. We encourage you to pledge your support to local land conservation this year on November 29th by giving online at www.nwalandtrust.org/donate.
