There are many reasons to help Six Rivers Land Conservancy preserve the special lands close to home and work. These range from proven increases in positive attitudes when we’re close to nature to the preservation of critical wetlands that provide important breeding areas for many fish and bird species. We hope you will find a reason of your own to support our day-to-day mission of preserving the lands and waters of our region.
You can support us each year at our online store. At the store, there are options for donations, memorial or honorary gifts, and our newest option of recurring gifts.
When you choose to give a recurring gift, you will be helping Six Rivers maintain consistent funding each month, which allows us to plan better and get more work done. When you choose a recurring gift amount, this amount will be processed on the card of your choice each month for the following 12 months. You can contact us to cancel these withdrawals at any time.
For those who are passionate about conservation and want to provide both financial and leadership support to Six Rivers' efforts, we offer the Sustainer's Circle.

If you are interested in joining the Sustainer's Circle, call 248-601-2816 or click for more information and to become a Sustainer's Circle member.
Individuals, businesses, and family foundations may wish to make a larger gift and play a vital role in leading Six Rivers' efforts. Visionary Society members are those able to give $1,000 a year or more to the Conservancy. Visionary Society members may be personally invited to special events and gatherings, as well as help guide the Conservancy through growth and development over our five-county region.

Six Rivers Land Conservancy has benefited from supporters who have left gifts to the Conservancy in their wills. These may be gifts of cash or securities or gifts of land. Gifts of land may be planned to be preserved as conservation land or planned as an asset the Conservancy can sell in order to use the proceeds to purchase conservation land. It is important to include the Conservancy in your planning, especially with gifts of land, so please contact us if you’re considering including us in your estate.
The work of the Six Rivers Land Conservancy is made possible through gifts from individuals, grants from foundations and corporations, and revenue from our events, and it is only with your gifts and support are we able to do our work. Supported by your gifts, we pledge to preserve and protect land with joy and integrity and to invite you to be a part of that work. Together we can engage in our greatness as human beings and in the rediscovery of our home in the natural world.
"I challenge you to move the resources that flow through your life toward your highest commitments and ideals, those things you stand for. I challenge you to imbue your money with soul - your soul - and let it stand for who you are, your love, your heart, your word, and your humanity." (From Lynne Twist, The Soul of Money)
With any planned giving option, it is very important that you work with your personal financial and tax adviser to do what is right for you and your family – and your land. For charitable gift annuities, Six Rivers has a relationship with the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan.
For information or assistance in planning your gift annuity, you can contact the Community Foundation at (313) 961-6675 or visit them on the web at www.cfsem.org.
