Workplace Giving and Business Sponsorship
“Mount Grace understands what the land means for our communities. Supporting Mount Grace is another way to make sure our business gives back, and helps lead the way to a sustainable future for all of us.” Claire Chang & John Ward, Solar Store of Greenfield
There are several ways to support Mount Grace at work. If you have any questions, please contact Mount Grace Major Gift & Grants Manager David Kotker at 978-541-1767 or kotker@. mountgrace.org
Hundreds of companies, both large and small, have employee matching gift programs that may effectively double your gift to Mount Grace. Simply include your company’s matching gift form when you send us your contribution.
One of the simplest ways to start a workplace gift is through EarthShare, a federation of environmental charities which raises funding for more than 400 local and national conservation groups. With EarthShare, you may pledge an automatic deduction from each paycheck which is designated to Mount Grace to support our land conservation work.
