ACRES Endowment Fund

Total Granted as of February 1, 2020

*updated monthly

Fund Purpose:
This fund was created to support ACRES Land Trust’s acquisition and management of nature preserves benefitting Grant County residents and visitors.

Fund Story:
ACRES Land Trust manages and protects 85 nature preserves, preserving more than 5,000 acres of scenic and environmentally significant natural areas. They offer outdoor education programs, nature study, nature photography, canoe trips, concerts, festivals, and environmental education programs for school children. ACRES is a volunteer-driven organization that values the communities where the nature preserves are located.

This fund was started when ACRES took on the property of Asherwood in Wabash, IN. The property, currently owned by Grant County Schools, is a nature preserve that ACRES manages and will eventually own themselves. ACRES has endowments at several community foundations in the counties where its reserves are located.

“We want to make connections and build relationships in each community,” said Heather Barth, Director of Fund Development.

ACRES will have their first nature preserve in Grant County very soon! Once the preserve is established in Grant County, this fund will be used to maintain it.
