Story County Conservation (SCC) receives funding from several sources. The biggest portion of funding comes from property taxes. Grant money is sought as often as possible and private donations also play an important part in funding.

The Friends of Conservation Trust Fund allows you to donate to SCC in a variety of ways. You may choose to donate a particular item on the wish list or give a gift of money to commemorate a special occasion or to remember a loved one.

Monetary donations can be used for the purchase of natural areas. Direct gifts of land or conservation easements are also welcomed. Both are a great way to protect your wild areas from future development.

Your gifts to the Friends of Conservation Trust Fund are tax-deductible under U.S.C. section 170(c)(1). We recommend that you confer with your tax preparer for information on tax-deductible donations.
