This summer there are two ways to double or triple your gift to the Sheffield Land Trust!

2017 Summer Match Challenge

Two long-time members have joined together to create the 2017 Summer Match Challenge. It is a $25,000 challenge grant that will match, dollar for dollar, any donation that is received by September 15, 2017.

• For example, if you give $50 by September 15, the 2017 Summer Match Challenge will match your contribution with an additional $50, for a total of $100.

• You can triple your gift, too—if you increase your most recent annual contribution or become a new member, the 2017 Summer Match Challenge will match your contribution with two dollars for every dollar you give. That means if you gave $100 last year and you give $250 this year before September 15, your gift will be matched with an additional $500, for a total of $750.

Special Match for Ashley Falls Woods

The Amelia Peabody Charitable Fund has provided a $45,000 challenge grant for the Ashley Falls Woods Community Trail project. Your gift for the Ashley Falls Woods project, received by December 15, will be matched by the Amelia Peabody Charitable Fund. If your gift is received by September 15, it will also be matched by the 2017 Summer Match Challenge!
