2020 Day of Giving
We’re living though unprecedented times that are currently and will surely continue to reshape our world – from what we value, to where and with whom we spend our time.
For ALT member Lenny L., the global pandemic has redefined the outdoors from “a space he enjoys in his free time” to his “Everything-Away-From-Home”. He said it now provides everything from “consistent exercise, motivation, and scenery to socially-distanced human interaction and mental stress relief.”
According to a May through July 2020 United States Mobility Report conducted via Google’s location services, visitation to parks saw an increase of 86% nationwide and of 152% in Pennsylvania – a trend that Google shows as increasing.
With the help of members, volunteers, and supporters like you, we’re working hard to protect more land, maintain and improve our existing green space (especially as we’re seeing more visitation), and provide virtual and safe on-site nature-based education for all ages.
Your gift on September 17 will go twice as far in supporting our efforts to protect more “Everythings-Away-From-Home”. Our Board of Directors has generously pledged to match every dollar donated by supporters on September 17 with a dollar of their own up to $30,000.
Why give during our Day of Giving? Quite simply because gifts made during our Day of Giving (and the matching dollars they will generate) provide much-needed operating support during these very challenging times.
So, please, mark your calendar, tell a friend, and HELP US TURN $30,000 into $60,000 FOR CONSERVATION with this dollar-for-dollar Day of Giving match pool!
