Financial Overview


You Make It Possible…

Conserving land and water in New Canaan means a commitment to serving families and people from all walks of life, both today and into the future. 

The community support we receive each year is central to our ability to make a difference and conserve the lands that are the heart and soul of New Canaan.


Putting Your Donations to Work

We work with our community to conserve and care for our precious open spaces. Our 400-acre network of woodlands, meadows, wetlands, ponds, and streams help to protect the scenic beauty of our town, provide educational and recreation opportunities for our residents, and ensure that our native wildlife has a home.

With kids (and adults) spending more and more time on their electronics, the time is now to get them outside and finding fun, interesting, and challenging experiences. We know from research that today’s youth develop a great deal of their conservation ethic at a young age.

To help with this, we offer free programs and walks, and partner with area non-profits, youth groups, and community organizations to ensure that conservation stands the test of time.

Our financial success rests upon the generosity of individuals as well as foundations, businesses and community groups. We receive 70% of our annual support from people like you.
