Ways to Support the Forest Society:
Donate Now to our Annual Fund
It's the easiest way to show your support! The Forest Society's Annual Fund supports the full spectrum of our work to conserve, manage and care for lands and waters across the state and to engage people through education, advocacy, and events that foster appreciation and action on behalf of our great outdoors. You can also donate in honor or memory of a loved one.
Give to a Land Protection Project
Each year, the Forest Society works in partnership with landowners, neighbors, donors, grantmaking organizations, partner land trusts, conservation commissions and local and state governments to identify and conserve strategic additions to our network of permanently protected forests, lands and waters.
Forever Means Forever
Our stewardship funds help support the perpetual care and management of our conservation areas and the conservation easements that we hold. This work ranges from trail maintenance to habitat management to mowing and maintaining parking areas and trailheads.
Membership Makes a Difference
Our members are part of a tight knit group of dedicated people who all share a similar goal – to preserve the open spaces that make New Hampshire so special. You can also give a membership as a gift and join as a business member.
Policy Action Fund
Over more than a century, we’ve led numerous campaigns to protect special places, from Franconia Notch to Mount Monadnock. We defended the integrity of New Hampshire’s conserved lands by fighting and defeating Northern Pass. But, to protect New Hampshire’s forests we must be perpetually vigilant.
Land Action Fund
Because owners do not always have the capacity to donate their land or conservation easements, sometimes the Forest Society has to purchase land or conservation easements, at times quickly, in order to protect a property’s exceptional natural resources. The Land Action Fund provides funding to accomplish these important projects.
Assets to Acres
Did you know that the Forest Society accepts gifts of other types of property, such as homes, undeveloped house lots, and commercial properties? We will even accept as a gift your existing conservation easement lands to keep as reservations or we may, when appropriate, re-sell the property to new owners, while still subject to the conservation easement.
