Membership

Membership dollars are used for everything from direct land conservation and program development to essential equipment maintenance and staff salaries. Belwin Conservancy simply could not operate without this sort of unrestricted funding.

Special Projects

Metcalf MarshBelwin Conservancy is actively working to protect and restore land in the Valley Creek watershed and beyond. Sometimes as part of this work, we need to raise money in support of one of these specific projects. In 2019, we are raising money to replenish Belwin's aging fleet of maintenance vehicles.

Thanks to our supporters, over the last several years we have been able to accomplish some amazing things. We have successfully raised the funds necessary to complete the following projects:

  • 2008: Metcalf Property (12 acres)
  • 2009: Save Kettelkamp Prairie (8 acres)
  • 2010: Valley Creek (17 acres)
  • 2011: Trout Spawning Grounds (50 acres)
  • 2017: Stagecoach Prairies Natural Area (12.8 Acres)

Stock

Belwin Conservancy accepts gifts of stock. These tax-deductible gifts support all of our work protecting and restoring land in the St. Croix Valley and can be made as part of an annual membership contribution.

Corporate Sponsorship

The Twin Cities are blessed with many of the nation’s most generous and compassionate corporate citizens. This region in particular has been the birthplace and inspiration for some of Minnesota’s most successful companies. Belwin Conservancy is pleased to have the support of some of these organizations.

Planned Giving

Planned giving is a meaningful way to provide for the health of this organization and the well-being of the community, well into the future. If you are planning on including Belwin Conservancy in your will, please contact Angie Eckel and let us know. We would love to show you our gratitude.

Land

One of Belwin Conservancy's primary missions is to protect land for our future generations. A gift of land is perhaps the most direct way of supporting this organization. Due to our status as a nonprofit, gifts of land can have significant tax benefits.
