Your donation helps connect, protect and restore the Florida Wildlife Corridor

YOUR DONATION MATTERS

Thank you for supporting all conservation organizations and especially the Florida Wildlife Corridor Foundation, whose mission is to permanently connect, protect and restore the Florida Wildlife Corridor. We need your help to permanently protect the Corridor, keeping it connected from the Everglades to Georgia and west to Alabama. Current projections point to the Florida Wildlife Corridor losing approximately half a million acres of land by 2030. An additional 400,000 acres of its most ecologically valuable land could be developed by 2050. Once these lands are gone, they are lost forever.

Your contribution is so much more than charity. Your contribution is an investment in Florida’s future generations. Ensure the Corridor has consistent support and maximize your impact by making a monthly contribution. Extend that support by telling like-minded friends, you support the Florida Wildlife Corridor and inviting them to join the movement.

DONOR GIVING SOCIETIES

A compass shows direction. Where we’ve come from and a new way forward. Where we remain grounded and where we have left to go. For the Giving Societies, the compass represents our true north — accelerating the pace of conservation for Florida’s future generations. The compass — our new donor icon — also serves as a visual reminder of the 18 million acres of connected lands that traverse from the Everglades to Georgia and west to Alabama. And with your help, we’re leading the way in conservation practices that maintain the balance between Florida’s growing economy and its invaluable ecosystem.

We love to honor our donors and these societies do just that. From longtime donors to monthly gift-givers, to corporations making a difference, just like the Corridor there is something for everyone. Where do you see yourself? Get in touch with our Director of Development, Danna Bramlett at danna@floridawildlifecorridor.org for more information.

If you watch the Florida Wildlife Corridor expedition films, you’ll see a part of Florida that not everyone gets to see and it’s special. The land is special. The wildlife is special. And it needs to be preserved. I give because it’s a way to pay it forward. To pay it back.

I believe [Calhoun International’s] corporate sponsorship will have greater impact and bring more visibility to the problem than anything I can do as an individual. Sharing the beauty and uniqueness of our state on a much broader scale will hopefully create a sense of ownership that drives future generations to do their part to save wild Florida.

The Florida Wildlife Corridor Foundation understands and appreciates the vital role of philanthropy to accomplish our work. That’s why we subscribe to the Donor Bill of Rights developed by the American Association of Fund-Raising Counsel, Association for Healthcare Philanthropy, Council for Advancement and Support of Education, National Society of Fund-Raising Executives:

“Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the not-for-profit organizations and causes that they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:

  1. To be informed of the organization’s mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.
  2. To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization’s governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities.
  3. To have access to the organization’s most recent financial statements.
  4. To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.
  5. To receive appropriate acknowledgment and recognition.
  6. To be assured that information about their donation is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.
  7. To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature.
  8. To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired solicitors.
  9. To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share.
  10. To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.”
