Thank you to all the supporters who generously donated to our Legacy Fund on GivingTuesday!

We are very happy to say that this year, we’ve reached more than our goal to increase the Legacy Fund by $1,000. We surpassed our goal and raised $1,900! Thanks to a generous donor who matched every dollar above $500, we raised a total of $3,300. What a big success!

2 Giving Tuesday

Contributing to the Muskoka Conservancy Legacy Fund is powerful way of showing that you believe in protecting Muskoka’s special spaces FOREVER.

Established in 2008, the Legacy Fund was created by a group of donors who want to ensure that Muskoka Conservancy is always able to protect precious spaces and provide programs to all of Muskoka.

One of the many challenges faced by the Muskoka Conservancy is that FOREVER is a very long time, and that is how long we have committed to protecting Muskoka’s natural spaces. A strong legacy fund will allow us to be proactive in responding to changes in the economy, grant availability and property and program needs by providing a protected fund whose income can be used to support properties and projects.

Currently, we are looking to increase the size of our legacy fund to $2 million. With a strong legacy fund, the organization has protected, self-sustaining source of revenue that will provide stability to Muskoka Conservancy FOREVER.

We know that $2 million is a very high target and it will take us time to reach it. But thanks to your support on Giving Tuesday, we are starting on the right foot!

GivingTuesday is a way for us to remind all our members and supporters about the importance of our Legacy Fund. But GivingTuesday is also about giving back to your community, in whatever way you can. This year, we asked WHY community members are involved whit us. The result is pretty awesome and you can see it below on the slideshow:
