Membership in the Foundation
The Nantucket Conservation Foundation is a member-supported organization that relies on generous contributions by friends and supporters to fulfill its mission - the preservation and protection of Nantucket's open spaces. As an annual member, you will receive: a Foundation Properties Map, membership decal, all Foundation newsletters and publications and invitations to attend guided walks on the Foundation's properties. But most importantly, you will share in the satisfaction of knowing that you have helped to ensure that Nantucket's open spaces and natural habitats will be preserved - forever.

All contributions to the Nantucket Conservation Foundation are tax deductible.
A special group known as the Colleagues of the Nantucket Conservation Foundation was organized in 1990 to acknowledge those individuals who have demonstrated, through their regular and substantial annual support, a deep commitment to the Foundation's work. In recognition of their generosity, Colleagues are invited to participate in events scheduled throughout the summer and fall. Opportunities to explore conservation properties with our knowledgeable staff put Colleagues in direct contact with the natural resources they are helping to protect. Occasional informal social gatherings give them the chance to meet with the Foundation's Officers, Board of Trustees, and Advisory Council.
Participation in the Colleagues is open to those who contribute $1,000 or more based on their total giving within a single fiscal year (November 1 - October 31).
Mornings for Members Program
The Mornings For Members program is a series of informal, guided walks designed to familiarize those who support the Foundation's programs with the many diverse properties and natural resources that are under its care. These walking tours, which are led by the Foundation's staff and trained volunteers, allow members to explore and learn about the pristine areas that they are helping to protect.

Land Fund Contributions
The Foundation's Land Fund is used exclusively for the purpose of purchasing conservation land on Nantucket. All membership gifts in excess of $500 are automatically applied to this fund. Other support for the Land Fund comes from gifts that are specifically designated for land acquisition or special donations such as those given as memorial gifts or to honor an individual or event.
