Investing In Our Shared Future

From Our Chairman and CEO

R. Michael Leonard, ChairmanR. Michael LeonardLawrence A. Selzer, PresidentLawrence A. SelzerWe’re often asked: “What is it that makes The Conservation Fund different?” Our answer: We believe we are in the business of conservation and therefore are relentlessly focused on achieving our mission of land and water conservation in a very businesslike way. That means we are disciplined in how we allocate and leverage our financial resources so that we deliver outsized conservation results for every dollar invested. We have the lowest overhead and highest program allocation of any environmental group in the country, putting over 95 percent of our resources directly into achieving conservation results.

Our focus on both environmental and economic outcomes is unique and powerful. For the environmental movement to continue its leadership role in society well into the 21st century, we need to figure out how to balance pristine wilderness with sustainably managed working lands like forests, farms and ranches. That’s what we do every day at The Conservation Fund.

As we reflect on the past year, we are grateful to have loyal individuals, companies, government agencies and foundations who understand how we use capital and expertise to achieve their vision. We have chosen not to have a costly membership or an endowment that can be caught in downdrafts in the economy. Instead, we have our own Revolving Fund—that you’ll learn more about in this report for 2018—that stretches and recycles every dollar for optimal conservation impact. By revolving our capital time and time again, we keep your contributions working.

As an organization we are relatively small, but our impact is substantial and enduring. We act nimbly and, very importantly, work with partners in both the public and private sectors. With their trust and shared sense of urgency, we benefit from thinking strategically together to produce better and larger outcomes.

Thank you for joining with us on this critically important journey. We could not achieve our ambitious goals without your support and partnership and our shared belief in making conservation work for America.

Our Revolving Fund

Established in 1986, the Revolving Fund provides ready capital for acquisition of lands and waters of high conservation value. Funds are continually in use for conservation: upon repayment, we “revolve” the moneyback into the Revolving Fund and successive projects. Every dollar in the Revolving Fund is used to acquire property—no overhead, no administrative expenses. Since its establishment, over 90% of the Revolving Fund has been invested at all times in communities throughout America.

Connecting Passion and Philanthropy

Whether you feel a deep connection to the mountains or shorelines near your hometown, find solace in hiking on your favorite trail, or are passionate about protecting a neighborhood park down the street, we all have personal reasons that ignite a love for nature. But as we know, the increasing demand for protecting lands with high conservation value comes at a price. That’s why the continued support from our donors is so critical to our work.

Gretchen Hoffmann and Bill Chudd live with their two boys in Connecticut and have been loyal donors to The Conservation Fund for over a decade. They understand the importance of making lasting investments in the lands they love. Gretchen grew up in upstate New York, wading through streams and collecting bugs in her backyard. Her family always made sure nature was close by and was a valued part of their lives. Gretchen and Bill work hard to do the same for their own family. “We realize how lucky we are to have access to nature, and we support
the Fund’s determination to improve access to the outdoors for everyone. We hope our boys will grow up loving and protecting our environment as well.”

Hoffmann Chudd Westport

It was important for Gretchen and Bill to find an organization that matched their passion for conservation with accountability and financial responsibility. “We initially found The Conservation Fund through Charity Navigator,” said Bill. “And their consistently good rating helped give us confidence in our choice to support them. All of their projects and initiatives are built on the premise that conservation is good for both the environment and economy, which we think sets them apart from so many other organizations.”

No matter what inspires you to give, our donors are helping ensure our forests, historic sites, parks and other special places across the country are here now and for future generations to enjoy. Conservation takes teamwork. And we couldn’t do this without you.

From Our CFO

John Gilbert
It is not unusual for nonprofit organizations to have a substantial part of their assets invested in stocks and bonds, but The Conservation Fund is not your usual nonprofit. Our founder had a clear vision that virtually all our assets should be working to achieve our mission, and we’ve done that by building the hardest working balance sheet in the conservation sector. Our interim holdings of more than $500 million in conservation land projects are constantly revolving into new transactions that uphold our dual mission impact of conservation and economic vitality. Moreover, these projects typically cover most of our cost base and support new investments. Since we began, we have conserved over 8 million acres of land through $4.8 billion in solid conservation and economic projects.

Our financial results in 2018 were another strong reaffirmation of our financial model. Revenues exceeded $200 million for the fifth year in a row, and we were able to generate a strong surplus of $17.2 million because of an increase in higher margin program activity. This enables us to continue to invest in new land acquisitions as well as our organizational capacity, and we are in a tremendous position to meet the opportunities ahead. Part of being well positioned means that our financial statements, policies and processes are of a quality consistent with our ambitions, and we have made further strides toward that goal as well.

In 2018, we completed the second and final step in revising our accounting policies to improve the transparency and accounting conservatism of our financial statements. We recognized an $18.7 million charge to revalue our land holdings down to our purchase price instead of appraised value, and we reformatted our statements to more clearly show the revenue and expenses directly associated with our real estate activity. Together with the steps we took in 2017, we believe our policies are now more conservative, and our financials will show a clearer and more accurate picture of our activity.

As part of making these changes and scrutinizing all our projects, we also have adjusted certain accounts in 2017 for accuracy and consistency in accounting policy. This resulted in a prior-period adjustment of our net assets down 2.8 percent or $16.4 million, which is in addition to the accounting-related charge we took in 2017 to revalue our conservation easements. As a result, we encourage you to review our audited financial reports for 2018 and our restated audited financials for 2017 for more details.* While these accounting changes and adjustments have made year-to-year comparisons of our financial results difficult, we believe all of these changes are vital for the Fund to be able to tell its story to new and existing supporters who want to see our vision for smart conservation fully realized.

Thank you for your continued support.

The Richard King Mellon Foundation's Conservation Legacy


The Conservation Fund’s unwavering dedication to creating conservation solutions that also advance the economic well-being of local communities has proved over and over to resonate with those who support us. The scale of sustained generosity from one visionary donor—the Richard King Mellon Foundation (RKMF)—has made extraordinary strides toward protecting our nation’s working forests.

Spanning more than three decades, our partnership with RKMF will be a chapter in the history of conservation for its significance to the American landscape and people. The Pittsburgh- based Foundation, established in 1947 by passionate conservationists Richard King Mellon and Constance Prosser Mellon, has directly supported the protection of over 3.4 million acres of the more than 8 million acres The Conservation Fund has protected across the country. Nowhere has this support been more evident than in the Foundation’s dedication to protecting America’s last large, intact working forests and the communities that rely upon them.

Working forests, which are privately owned forests producing timber products and jobs, are the backbone of many rural economies. They are critical to the clean water we drink and air we breathe, are vital to our national efforts to address climate change and provide a place for people in many rural communities to fish, hunt and enjoy the outdoors.

The Foundation recognizes, as the Fund does, that the loss of these working forests is the most urgent conservation challenge facing our country today. In 1998, the Foundation helped us pioneer our concept for protecting these forests and over the past decade has served as the catalyst for taking this proven model, known today as the Working Forest Fund, to scale. By recycling a dedicated pool of capital, the Working Forest Fund allows us to quickly buy forests when they come on the market. Then we manage, permanently conserve and eventually resell them as working forests to owners who must adhere to the protective covenants.

Through $60 million in grants and more than $97 million in program- related investment loans, the Foundation has helped us protect 20 large forests covering more than 450,000 acres across the nation— from the Pennsylvania Wilds, home to reintroduced elk, to the carbon-rich redwood forests of California. It has also demonstrated how the combination of grants and low-cost debt can generate tremendous leverage in public and charitable dollars for conservation. To date, we have repaid $29 million worth of program-related investments to the Foundation, which has often chosen to reissue these loans into the next working forest project. As grant and loan funds recycle out of a protected forest and into the next one in need of protection, these funds have a powerful multiplier effect.

As we set our sights on protecting the next million acres of high-priority working forests, we pay homage to the Richard King Mellon Foundation for helping us launch and demonstrate how successful the Working Forest Fund model can be. We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Foundation and hope to inspire many other partners to address this urgent challenge and protect the vital role of forests in providing clean air and water and places to recreate, addressing climate change, and helping create economic benefits for rural communities.

“The Conservation Fund works hard to find solutions for all stakeholders and not just the conservationists, from the purchase and conversion of forestland to allow for sustainable harvesting, to urban green spaces like the Belt Line in Durham. This is particularly critical in the current political climate and is a clear example of why the Fund is so successful.”
