Every dollar invested in the District goes directly into implementation of hands on conservation projects which will build an environmental legacy we can be proud of.

Through the generous support of previous donors the Muskegon Conservation District has established two organizational community funds with the Community Foundation for Muskegon County. Each fund was established as a way to ensure conservation, preservation, and restoration are a part of OUR legacy, while helping to create yours.
The first fund, The Muskegon Conservation District Endowment Fund, was established to support District operations while also providing overhead for innovative on-site initiatives like updating buildings and equipment in the most environmentally sensitive and sustainable manner.
The second fund, The Muskegon Conservation District Project Fund, was established to enhance critical conservation and preservation activities, as well as create unique opportunities for innovative restoration projects.
Even if you have made a cash donation to us in our request to Support the District, please consider giving a gift to one of these Community Foundation funds by:
• Writing a check with the name “Muskegon Conservation District Endowment Fund” or “Muskegon Conservation District Project Fund” in the memo line and mailing to the Community Foundation at:
The Community Foundation for Muskegon County
425 W. Western Ave., Suite 200
Muskegon, MI 49440
• OR by visiting the Community Foundation Website and making an online donation. In the “Specific Funds” section click to select “Muskegon Conservation District” and/or “Muskegon Conservation District Project.”

In this effort the District depends on your financial contributions to continue building on our successes and leading the way for hands-on conservation in your community.
