Anonymous Donor offers new Dingley Dell $5000 Matching Grant through December 2018!
Based on a visit to Dingley Dell in early November, an anonymous donor has offered a Challenge Grant for Dingley Dell – an opportunity to double your donations made before the end of the year! This generous donor will MATCH all donations for Dingley Dell, up to $5,000 – raising the much needed $10,000 to complete the nature preserve.
Since the purchase in 2017, volunteers have been marking the route for trails on the property and Opacum has begun conversations regarding an adequate parking area for safe and easy access. Funding is still needed for the parking lot, the trail head kiosk and other trail and property costs.
Help us complete the Dingley Dell project! Let’s make sure that we can capture every penny of this Challenge! Every gift counts!
Gifts of $1,000 will be listed on the permanent donor sign at Dingley Dell as a member of the “Conservation Leadership Circle”, and all donations from $500 to $999 will be listed as part of the “Conservation Partners”.
We can’t wait to finish up our work so everyone has easy and safe access. Then watch for news in the spring of another hike to see for yourself.
