Thank you!

Your help is needed before June 30th to bridge a budget shortfall and maintain critical environmental programs.

Today we are asking for your help. 

Your gift is necessary to maintain critical programs to protect and restore Minnesota’s environment. Your gift is needed to keep our waters drinkable, our air breathable, and our lands full of life.

We’ve just been through a year unlike any other. Minnesota’s incredible outdoor spaces were an especially important refuge for all of us through the pandemic.

Parks, trails, lakes, and open spaces became some of the safest places to connect with those we love. And many of us also went to nature to find healing and restoration during one of the most stressful and difficult times in a generation.

In many ways, the environment was there for us.

Our work has always been to give back – to work diligently to protect Minnesota’s environment so that future generations can find this same refuge in nature when they need it most.

But as you read this, the Minnesota Environmental Fund is facing intersecting challenges. We are facing a budget shortfall at a time when the need for work to protect Minnesota’s natural resources is greater than ever. 

Because of the pandemic, major workplace giving campaigns for our environment were canceled. While we were able to bridge some of this gap, as we approach the end of our fiscal year on June 30th, we are still facing a shortfall of $7,500.

So we need friends like you. Will you make a gift before our June 30 fundraising deadline to protect Minnesota’s air, water, land, and wildlife so that future generations can enjoy its beauty?
