When we try to pick out anything by itself,
we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.

We invite you to make a donation to The Tampa Bay Conservancy, Inc. a non-profit land conservation organization dedicated to preserving the Bay Area's natural, agricultural and scenic heritage. Donors receive an e-newsletter, invitations to special events and tours and lectures. Most importantly, donors gain the knowledge that they are helping to preserve the environment for themselves and future generations.
Sponsor an Event
We are a volunteer-run organization, and always welcome more energy! If you would like to sponsor an event such as a fundraiser, a speaking engagement or volunteer day, please contact us and tell us what you have in mind.
One way you can make a lasting impact in land conservation is through a gift in your will, IRA, insurance policies, stocks & bonds, real estate, etc. Please see your professional advisor or attorney to make such a planned gift. They will help you know the best way to include the Tampa Bay Conservancy. Contact us if you would like to discuss your possibilities or to let us know your plans.
We have a few different opportunities for volunteers. Youth groups such as school clubs or scout troops are welcomed resources for our nature preserves – in particular, Gibbons Preserve. You can also attend a board or committee meeting to get involved in other projects. Please contact us for more information and opportunities.
The Tampa Bay Conservancy works with other organizations, local Boy Scout Troops and area residents to maintain the Gibbons Preserve.
Are donations of tangible goods and/or services rather than cash. For example donating materials or equipment to repair something on our conservation lands.
The Conservancy used this donation technique to help repair the bridge over Bell Creek on our Gibbons Preserve in 2018-2020.
Another in-kind donation might be an item for a silent auction.
Please contact a board member if you feel you have something that fits this type of donation.
