Please Help Us Save More Open Space – The Gift That Keeps on Giving….
At Orenda we believe in doing good things for our environment and our community. We know that with every acre of land we protect, we are saving wildlife and protecting the waters, air, and woods that we all depend upon and turn to for solace in these challenging times. Open space is the gift that keeps on giving……to you, our community and to our planet. But we can only accomplish our goals with the generosity of donors like you.
Please consider Orenda on Tuesday November 30th, 2021 as we begin this gift-giving season. “Giving Tuesday”, which occurs annually on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, is a global generosity movement created in 2012 that inspires and celebrates collaboration and generosity. The movement strives to build a world in which the power of generosity is at the heart of our actions. Your generosity is what helps Orenda continue to save land and wildlife and what makes the world go round.
