WAYS TO GIVE

WE CANNOT PROTECT THE RESOURCES OF THE SANDHILLS WITHOUT YOU.

Your contributions to Sustainable Sandhills are invaluable.

There are several ways to contribute.

DONATE TO OUR GENERAL FUND

We use donations to our general fund to support a variety of projects and programs that encourage energy conservation and efficiency, protect clean air and water, encourage pollution prevention, conserve our public lands and build more sustainable communities. Or, we may use these donations for operating support.

DONATE MONTHLY OR ANNUALLY

A monthly or annual gift is an convenient way to support Sustainable Sandhills year-round. Simply select the Yes! I want to donate to Sustainable Sandhills regularly button on our donation processing site to start your recurring gift. Your gift will be automatically deducted from your checking account on the same day each month or each year, depending on the frequency of your gift.

DONATE TO A SPECIAL FUND

You can donate to a special fund to ensure that your contribution helps a cause that is close to your heart. Read more about our special funds below …

THE MILLIE FUND

The Melissa Clement Memorial Fund – or, as its affectionately called, The Millie Fund – was established in honor of the longtime Fayetteville Observer columnist and local artist for the purpose of establishing a community garden.

Sustainable Sandhills and its partners are currently procuring funding to construct The Mill House Garden in downtown Fayetteville. Your contributions will help us fund the construction and maintenance of this important project.

You can learn more about The Mill House Garden HERE.

THE CARBON BANK

Sustainable Sandhills has partnered with Cumberland County Schools to establish a carbon bank at public schools throughout the county.

The Carbon Bank is designed to sequester greenhouse gases and improve our air quality. Students can also use the sites as living learning laboratories. Douglas Byrd High School’s Academy of Green Technology, a federal Department of Education Green Ribbon School, has a carbon sequestration study field lab at the Carbon Bank at the Educational Resource Center.

A $50 donation will ‘adopt’ one tree and contribute to its maintenance for an entire year.
