Our contributions are targeted to programs and organizations serving underprivileged youth and families. The thrust is to support programs and organizations that enhance cognitive and social skills for educational success.
More than 75 properties in Southeastern Massachusetts have benefitted from our efforts. The approach has been to connect local conservation groups to each other in an effort to scale-up effectiveness. Director of the Plymouth chapter of the Nature Conservancy, Robb Johnson, said that this approach has “Freed up the attention of all the groups to focus on results - not worrying about who got the credit.”
