giving-tuesday-2016-blog-imageOn Tuesday, November 29, we have just 24 hours to turn an ordinary weekday into something remarkable: a day to celebrate and strengthen local conservation, right here in the Eastern Sierra.

And you can make that possible.

Each yearon the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, we celebrate Giving Tuesday: theNational Day of CharitableGiving.

And this year, your Giving Tuesday donation on Nov. 29 willhave THREE TIMES the power. That’s because the Eastern Sierra Land Trust Board of Directors has offeredto match $2 for every $1 you givethat day only (up to $1000).

Help us kick off the season of giving by making a holiday donation to ESLT on Nov. 29, and you’ll triple your impact on the future of the lands you love!

Your tax-deductible Giving Tuesday donation can be made online here, over the phone at(760) 873-4554, or you can drop by our office in person.

What do you care about, here in the Eastern Sierra? Is itthe blue skies, clean water, and a healthy environment that benefits humans and wildlife alike? Wide-open vistas that fill you with awe?Maybe it’s thesight of a fawn at its mother’s side, or a rare bird on the lakeshore. Or perhaps it’s the generations-old family ranches: productive lands that support our local economy and keep the spirit of the American West alive and well.

This Giving Tuesday, we hope you’ll remember what it is that you love most about theEastern Sierra—then make a tax-deductible gift in its honor.

Your friends on the ESLT Board care, too, and thanks to them, your gift will have THREE TIMES the power to protect what you care about.

Your Giving Tuesday donation will make a difference: right here, in the place you love—for today, and for generations to come. As a locally-supported conservation organization, we couldn’t do it without you.

So thank you for caring—and have a joyous holiday season!
