Why Donate?

Since 1990, ALT has permanently conserved over 2,418 important open space acres. However, we are only about half-way to completing 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 on Aquidneck Island, permanently protecting over 2,500 acres of irreplaceable open space.

Because ALT is a local non-profit organization we can act with speed when a threatened property goes on the market, but we need financial resources to be able to do so. By giving to ALT you are leaving to future generations this uniquely beautiful Island we call home. Our ambitious plans to protect a total of about 4,000 acres of Aquidneck Island’s open space must include steady increases in community support over the next few years. ALT relies on donations from individual supporters to fund its core expenses. Without your support we would not have the staff necessary to meet with landowners, care for protected lands or seek foundation and public agency funds.
