Help raise $20,000 to protect land in Massachusetts

What is so special about the Mass Land Trust Coalition?  MLTC is the only organization of its kind in Massachusetts– a singular mission dedicated to helping land trusts protect land in the Commonwealth.   We carry this mission proudly and with purpose.

The Challenge

We must raise $20,000 in the next five weeks to receive another $20,000 in matching funds.  Momentum is building!  To do our work, we rely on financial support from people who care – like you!

We treasure our open spaces.  They allow for a quality of life residents love and many seek when moving to Massachusetts.  Protected open spaces let us enjoy the outdoors.  Whether for hiking, dog walking, eating locally grown food, or simply driving through the countryside – it is land we cannot take for granted.  Conserved land helps with improved air and water quality.   Animals depend on these protected lands for survival. 

Where will the funds go?

Funds will allow MLTC to continue and improve on the quality services we provide to protect the land YOU LOVE. MLTC’s annual Mass Land Conservation Conference, E-news, workshops, networking events, and advocacy efforts give land trusts and conservation organizations the tools necessary to preserve our open spaces. 

Donations have helped MLTC tackle pressing issues facing land trusts.  For example

  • Fighting threats to protected land such as the Town of Westford attempting to convert protected agricultural land to restaurant space.
  • Supporting an appeal to the MA Supreme Court that seeks to define what municipalities must do to make sure conservation land stays in conservation and is never developed.
  • Backing legislation to increase the funds available for the Massachusetts Conservation Land Tax Credit program. This valuable incentive program for landowners to conserve their land, capped at $2 million per year, now has a backlog of applicants through 2020. This legislation would raise the cap to $5 million per year.  

None of this would be possible without generous donors like you. We cannot do our work without financial support.  Given the news coming out of Washington, it is time to act locally!  Share our purpose and need with everyone you know.  YOU can make a difference in our success. 

Take proud ownership in MLTC by showing your support and keep the momentum going.  Give to help us reach our $20,000 goal.  Become part of our team!  AND THANK YOU!!
