From Our Board Chair and CEO

Jay Winthrop, ChairmanJay WinthropLawrence A. Selzer, PresidentLawrence A. SelzerOur annual report highlights The Conservation Fund at its best—innovative, solution oriented and committed to addressing America’s most pressing conservation challenges. It also underscores that while we have much to be proud of, there is still a lot of work to do.

This past year was filled with unprecedented difficulties, and as we slowly move away from the worst of the pandemic, we must not forget the important lessons we learned. One of them is the critical role nature plays in nearly every aspect of our lives. From the food we eat and the water we drink, to the places we go to find solace—nature delivers. We are grateful to have opportunities to make a real difference on the ground and in people’s lives:

  • Accelerating progress on natural climate solutions to address climate change, protecting biodiversity and water quality, and reinvigorating rural economies through the protection of America’s last large, intact working forests. Our Working Forest Fund® is delivering tremendous results and is poised for significant growth.
  • Ensuring we are fully prepared to help implement the Great American Outdoors Act (GAOA), with its full and permanent funding of the Land and Water Conservation Fund, by increasing the ready capital in our Revolving Fund. Our Revolving Fund is the financial mechanism that allows us to move quickly to acquire critical conservation lands when opportunities arise, and we must scale up accordingly to meet the increased demand anticipated with passage of the GAOA.
  • Continuing to integrate equity, diversity and inclusion into our programs and across our organization, such as our work to protect African American historic sites like Fort Blakeley in Alabama, and to create new greenspaces in underserved communities in Atlanta, Georgia; Kansas City, Missouri; and Richmond, California.

During our first year of operation in 1985, we completed two conservation projects protecting 450 acres. By the end of 2020, we had completed 3,522 projects, conserving a total of more than 8.4 million acres across all 50 states valued at more than $7.3 billion. With an amazing staff and board, and outstanding partners and supporters, we are well positioned to build on this legacy. Together we will accelerate the conservation of America’s magnificent land legacy while providing equitable and just economic opportunities that support sustainable communities. Please join us

Investing in Forests to Fight Climate Change

At The Conservation Fund, we are fast-tracking efforts to prevent forest loss by working with public, private and nonprofit partners to secure 5 million acres of at-risk forests across the country over the next 10-15 years. While we wait for the development of new technologies for carbon capture, we are investing in America’s forests as one of the best and cleanest ways to combat climate change right now.

What are some of the benefits of protecting 5 million acres of forestland?

climate mitigation
Climate Mitigation
One billion MTCO2e will be secured and stored. The carbon stored in these forests is equivalent to the carbon emitted by burning more than a trillion pounds of coal.
economic opportunity
Economic Opportunity
Forestry and recreation economies will generate a total economic impact of approximately $5 billion.
clean water
Clean Water
Water for thousands of communities will be filtered, and approximately 6,500 miles of rivers and streams will be protected.

Funding the Future of Conservation in America

What do our conservation stories have in common? Forethought. We work strategically today so that current and future generations will be able to connect with and benefit from the natural world even as populations grow, the climate changes and development expands.

Our Revolving Fund revolves in and out of projects every two years on average, and this continues in perpetuity—conserving acre after acre.

From Our CFO

John Gilbert
As Jay and Larry stressed in their opening letter, there is no time to waste in building a better and more sustainable future for all Americans. In 2020, The Conservation Fund delivered on that urgent vision despite formidable challenges from COVID-19:

  • We completed more conservation work as measured by total revenue than in any period in the Fund’s history. Thanks to the incredible efforts of our staff and the dedication of our conservation partners, our total revenues rose 18% despite the upheaval across our society due to COVID-19 and other 2020 challenges.

  • We successfully deployed almost all of our 2019 green bond proceeds and are on track to finish the initial slate of investments in 2021. In addition, some of the early project investments are already returning capital to the Fund that we can redeploy – demonstrating the unique multiplier effect of our Working Forest Fund.

  • We ended the year with a small net surplus of revenue after expenses.

And most importantly, we are positioned for the future. We resisted the temptation to reduce our organizational capacity during the worst of the COVID crisis, we have maintained a strong balance sheet and liquidity position, and we are ready and well prepared to extend our mission for conservation given our society’s focus on climate change and the increase in federal funding for land acquisition.

Thank you to all our partners, funders and staff who have made this possible.

Ambition We Proudly Shoulder—Honoring Our Founders in Retirement

Remembering the Legacy of
Two Conservation Heroes

Kiku Hanes

Elizabeth "Kiku" Hanes
1927 — 2021

On January 1, 2021, we lost one of the greatest champions of conservation, KiKu Hanes. She was one of the most active participants in great outdoor traditions—birding, hiking, hunting and fishing. Especially fishing. From Scotland to Iceland, Alaska to Argentina, she was a marvel with a fly rod. In fact, well into her 80s she and her older sister traveled every year to fish for sea-run brown trout in Patagonia, sending back pictures to Larry Selzer, our CEO, with no words, as the size of the fish was the only statement she needed to make.

KiKu was the paramount fundraiser at The Conservation Fund and a critical force in creating and building the strength of our Revolving Fund with our founder, Pat Noonan. With grace and humor, she taught countless people how to engage in the important work of conserving America’s great landscapes. She was passionate, persistent and utterly fearless. KiKu’s passing is a reminder to each of us that the opportunity to advance her legacy is a privilege we should honor and cherish.
Richard P. Mellon

Richard P. Mellon
1939 — 2020

Richard was born on May 19, 1939 and was the eldest son of the late Gen. Richard King Mellon and Constance Prosser Mellon—passionate conservationists who established the Pittsburgh-based Richard King Mellon Foundation. Richard was an avid outdoorsman and conservationist who had an enduring love for the natural environment.

For more than three decades the Richard King Mellon Foundation has been at the forefront of conservation in America—supporting the protection of over 4 million acres of the more than 8.4 million acres The Conservation Fund has protected across the country. The scale of sustained generosity from the Foundation has helped make extraordinary strides to bolster our Revolving Fund and protect places central to our country’s unique outdoor legacy—from Civil War Battlefields, to our last large intact working forests and the communities that rely upon them. Richard’s conservation leadership and vision has benefited all Americans.

“Land conservation feels like it has a more permanent impact than other means to support nature. The environmental impact is tangible. I can see it on a map. I can visit it. And I know that I’m helping make a difference. I give monthly to The Conservation Fund because it’s a priority to me. Like saving for retirement, it’s something that I want to make sure I do consistently.”

“My greatest hope is for The Conservation Fund and other organizations to continue to find ways to protect nature and slow climate change with greater speed and support. I want my stepchildren, nieces and nephews, and their children to feel the amazement and peace I have felt through my experiences in nature.”

“I strongly believe in The Conservation Fund’s mission and am always impressed by the organization’s engagement in diverse and impactful work. Since my current job is not directly involved in environmental activism, my contribution to The Conservation Fund is my way of giving to a cause I am passionate about.”

Greene
"My father was a committed conserver of land, forests and open spaces. Despite his great successes in so many areas of his life I think he was always happiest in nature. Having grown up in Alabama he had deep ties to the land and to the people who worked it and eventually to the people who worked to conserve it. In the 1930’s our family donated the property on Flagg Mountain where the CCC built a 55 foot high stone observation tower. I know my father was very pleased that the final terminus of the Pinhoti and Appalachian Trail system would be on that very property donated so long ago. His legacy gift to The Conservation Fund helps to ensure that his vision for that area continues."
