I just made a $250 donation. I want it to be in honor of Alva W Whitehead of Florence, SC and his daughter, Maria. The motor on the boat that my son-in-law and I were using sheared a pin near Dr. Whitehead's cabin on the Black Mingo River. He was very kind to us, providing tools and allowing us to work from his dock and cut a new shear pins from finish nails. He told us about the work his daughter is doing for the Nature Conservancy. I would have liked to have been able to make the donation in his honor as a part of the process, but did not see an option for that so that is why I am writing you.

I am donating in memory of my friend, Jared Jenkins. He believed in the beauty of the outdoors and in the mission of this conservancy. We will miss him. I hope my donation can further your work, and keep the world the way he knew it.

I've given up on mankind ever stopping destroying the earth. What you're doing, saving little bits of it, seems more doable.

My sister made a donation in my name for a gift many years ago and through her I learned about the Nature Conservancy. I believe in the Conservancy's method of working together with private parties and government agencies forming partnerships to better our world. We as individuals need to take responsibility for our earth...The Nature Conservancy gives us that opportunity no matter what size our contributions. Together we can keep our world beautiful and life sustaining.

I have donated in the past but not on a regular basis as I'm on a very limited income. I did come into a little money recently so feel I can share with you. I do love animals and would hate to see any more become extinct.

Since I am a Legacy Club member, my current contributions are nothing more than an advance on funds you will receive upon my demise. I

I tried for several minutes to find out how to donate IN HONOR of my grandsons, Matt, Andy and Nick. I am so disappointed that you do not have a place for that. THIS donation is in honor of them. I would have loved you to let them know by letter that this was done, but, again, you have no way to do this. Thank you.

I write a YA series called Serpenteens that follows five demigod teenagers with weather manipulating abilities, out to help save the planet! My hope is that the series brings to light the trouble the planet is in, and what people can do to help.

We believe in protecting our environment. Upon moving to northern Michigan we have worked to provide a "chemical" free zone on our 2 acres of land by providing natural habitat and food for the birds in our area. We garden, compost, and recycle. We have also planted many trees, primarily spruces and cedars, around our property to provide protection, nesting areas and natural foods for our avian visitors. We are also very pleased that the Nature Conservancy has protected a large tract of land in the Squaw Bay area, just south of Alpena! Thank you!

I was making a donation to the Michigan Nature Conservancy in memory of Lois Lance who died recently. However, there was no opportunity to indicate this. As the family has requested donations to be made to you, it is unfortunate that your website does not allow for donors to state why they are donating. If possible, please send an acknowledgement of this donation to her son: William Lance, 54 Old Connecticut Path, Wayland, MA 01778. Thank you.
