Giving Tuesday

 

‘Tis the giving season! GivingTuesday—celebrated this year on Tuesday, November 29—is a global movement promoting “radical generosity.”

Keep your contributions local by investing in Sheldrake’s community services. In addition to our commitment to nature education, Sheldrake’s charitable contributions include:

  • Stewardship of our 60 acres, including trail maintenance, clean-ups, and site enhancements
  • Planting, growing, and harvesting vegetables in our Giving Garden for donation to the Larchmont-Mamaroneck Hunger Task Force
  • Bilingual Nature Club events with our bilingual naturalist, offered free of charge to area families
  • Scout badge quests offered for a nominal fee

Support of Sheldrake is support for the community. Please give what you can.
