Seven Ways to Give This Season


The mission of CTNC is to protect land along the Blue Ridge Parkway, to assist 22 land trusts across the state, and to connect all North Carolinians to the outdoors. Your contribution helps pay for the countless programs and projects our team leads including the tens-of-thousands of acres of land protected to preserve water quality and scenic vistas along the Blue Ridge Parkway, the NC Youth Conservation Corps, which hires young people to build and maintain trails in our parks and other protected lands, our statewide communications project to help land trusts connect 100,000 voices to conservation, collaborative land protection in the Upper Neuse River watershed that provides safe, clean drinking water for residents in Central North Carolina, and so much more.

Individual giving makes up our largest source of funding. It’s easy to join our family of CTNC donors!

Simply choose a gift of any amount (starting at just $5) to be automatically drafted monthly through your credit card, debit card, or bank account. Monthly giving is an easy and efficient way to give, and this ongoing and steadfast support has a tremendous impact.

Make a Gift of Stock: Gifts of appreciated stocks are a great way to make a contribution and enjoy significant tax advantages as well. To make a gift of stock, please download this form. Please don’t forget to notify us of the name of the stock and the number of shares, so we can properly acknowledge your gift!

Honor Someone Special with a Tribute Gift:

Celebrate occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and graduations with a tribute gift. These gifts allow you to honor someone special while supporting CTNC’s mission of saving the places you love. A tribute card will be sent to anyone you choose to honor. Simply fill out the appropriate boxes on our website donation page.

Maximize Your Gift with an Employer Match:

It may be possible to double the impact of your gift! Many companies will match contributions from current and retired employees; some even match the gifts of employees’ spouses. Please be sure to ask your HR manager if your company participates in matching gifts through an employer match program.

How ever you choose to give, we’re excited to welcome you into the CTNC family as a member of a giving society.
