The Conservation Fund

The Conservation Fund is dedicated to conserving land, protecting the environment and training leaders. To date, the Fund has helped protect more than 7 million acres, sustaining wild havens, working lands and vibrant communities.

For over 30 years, The Conservation Fund has been saving special places across America. They have protected more than 7 million acres of land and water in all 50 states, from the park down the street to historic battlefields, wild areas and favorite destinations of all kinds. Working with community, government and business partners, we strive to balance economic and environmental goals. With the help from C&S Wholesale Grocers and others, The Conservation Fund has used carbon and tree planting financing to protect 125,000 acres of working forest and restore 25,000 acres of forestland, planting 10 million trees. The Conservation Fund ranks among the top 1% of charities nationwide.

  • Offset 87,614 tons of CO2
