Endowment

Consider donating to Hartley Nature Center’s Endowment Fund

Our endowment is a permanent investment in the future of Hartley Nature Center and our commitment to furthering environmental learning and stewardship into the future. Endowed funds are invested, rather than used as cash for immediate needs. Earnings from the endowment are unrestricted and are distributed to the Nature Center to support current priorities and exciting new opportunities as they arise.

Establishing a fund or contributing to our unrestricted endowment is not only generous, but an act of tremendous vision. Donors who decide to create a fund do so because they understand the importance of supporting Hartley not only during their lifetime, but for generations to come. Many donors choose to establish an endowed fund in order to honor a loved one, or to memorialize an important figure in their life, ensuring that their name and generosity will forever be a guiding force in Hartley’s success.

There are a variety of ways to contribute to Hartley’s endowment. Read more by clicking on the links below:
