You did it! We did it! We all did it!
What did we do?
We met our goal for the Campaign for the Conservancy, our $250,000 campaign to provide a permanent home for land conservation in our part of the state.
Thanks to generous supporters like you, the Blue Ridge Land Conservancy’s office in Roanoke’s Old Southwest neighborhood is paid in full. We’ll be completing some final work on the property, planting our beautiful gardens and installing our sponsored paver sidewalk this spring—but the heavy lifting is done.
The Lemon House - named in the memory of Barbara B. Lemon, our first board president, thanks to the generosity of the Lemon Family - will join together conservationists from across the state, provide places for enjoying and learning about native ecosystems, and open its doors to the community for meetings and programs.
If you’re like many of us, you may have set aside your invitation to give to the Campaign for the Conservancy, and this has all snuck up on you. After all, we did meet our goal ahead of schedule. So you may be asking yourself, “Can I still donate to the campaign?”
And the answer is…yes! Engraved pavers in our front walk are still available for $1000, and donations of any amount will go into our “rainy day” fund for future repairs and maintenance. In other words, just because the goal for the campaign has been met, the needs haven’t. Your donation will help continue to provide a home for saving land.
You can click the "Download the Donation Form" button above to the right and mail us a check. If you prefer to use a credit card you can enter the information on the form and mail it to us. Or donate online but be sure to make a note that your gift is for the capital campaign AND send us the form if you are donating a paver so we will know what goes on the paver.
Feel free to call or email us with questions.
