Ways to Give

Your gift makes a difference. With your support, Acterra can:

  • Educate adults, youth, companies and community organizations in how to make earth-friendly choices.
  • Cultivate environmental sustainability as a core value of local communities, creating momentum for change at the local, state and national levels.
  • Evaluate emerging environmental issues in our region and develop innovative programs to meet evolving needs.

Recurring Gifts

The ongoing support of monthly donors provides the dependable flow of funds Acterra needs for daily operations and future opportunities. Join a special community of members who lend their recurring support and increase your impact on our environment.

Monthly giving offers you a range of benefits:

  • Earth-friendly: Go paperless and reduce the use of natural resources.
  • Wallet-friendly: Fit your budget by spreading your donation over 12 months.
  • Convenient: You'll never have to remember to send a check or renew your membership.
  • Flexible: You can adjust or stop your donation at any time.
  • Effective: Provide dependable funding that is central to Acterra's work for our natural environment.
  • Efficient: Increase the impact of your gift by reducing Acterra's administrative costs.
  • Predictable: Your credit card will be charged on or around the same time each month — and you will receive a summary tax receipt in January.
