Massachusetts Land Trust Uses Crowdfunding to Conserve Acreage

A nonprofit regional land trust in Massachusetts ran a successful crowdfunding campaign to raise $25,000 to conserve 500 acres, according to The Boston Globe.

Two hundred and twenty six individuals donated to the seven-week campaign for Sudbury Valley Trustees, which was run through WorthWild, a company that specializes in environmental fundraising. The remainder of the funding to protect the land has been secured through state, municipal, and foundation sources.

The effort was mounted to conserve 500 acres of wildlife habitat, working farms, and recreational trails around Mount Pisgah in the communities of Berlin, Boylston, and Northborough.
