Annual Fund

Annual giving provides the financial foundation that allows WLCT to protect vital community resources. WLCT has been able to preserve 1700 acres over the past 50 years thanks to the hard work and annual support of the Westport community. 

Our annual fund campaign begins January 1 of each year and ends on December 31. Like many organizations, we place an emphasis on end-of-year giving through a more concentrated drive beginning in November of each year. Your generous gift to our annual appeal makes it possible for WLCT to:

  • Steward over 800 acres of publicly accessible land with over 12 miles of trails and pristine habitat
  • Host over 1,000 participants in our outdoor programs each year
  • Steward and Monitor over 1,300 acres of privately conserved land
  • Engage over 50 volunteers who provide over 2,500 hours of service each year
  • Protect Westport’s unique character by conserving on average 100 acres per year


Your annual fund gift helps connect people of all ages with the land.
