Annual Appeal

ALT’s Annual Appeal ensures that our doors stay open so that we can complete ambitious projects which will benefit our Island for generations to come. Our land conservation work, stewardship of our protected properties, and community programs and collaborations would not be possible without our dedicated staff, up-to-date technology, and other organizational infrastructure. Your donation directly supports ALT's time-sensitive mission to preserve Aquidneck Island's precious open spaces, natural character, and agricultural heritage for generations to come.

Support ALT's Land Acquisition Fund

Recently, ALT announced the successful conservation of three wonderful open space parcels across Aquidneck Island. We were able to spring in to action and save these properties because of the financial assets available in our Land Acquisition Fund – an account that now, as a result of this success, needs urgent replenishment. Help us on our journey to refill our Land Acquisition Fund so that we will be able to conserve that next great undisturbed forest, generations-old farm, or precious wildlife habitat.

Merritt Neighborhood Fund

The Merritt Neighborhood Fund at the Aquidneck Land Trust was established in 1999 to honor the late Peter M. Merritt, the organization’s visionary president emeritus, for his decade of leadership. The purpose of the fund is to provide modest ($100 - $2,500) grants to Aquidneck Island neighborhood and community groups.

Why Donate?

ALT turns your support into a lasting green legacy that will nourish and sustain our beloved Aquidneck Island for generations to come. Since 1990, ALT has permanently conserved over 2,500 important open space acres. However, there is a lot more work to be done in order for us to complete our lasting green legacy and time is not on our side. Donate today to help us conserve these last great places and responsibly steward the natural resources under our care! Because of the generosity of landowners, foundations, government agencies, and citizens like you, the Aquidneck Land Trust has completed more than 70 conservation projects across Aquidneck Island.
