Ways of Giving

You can play an important role in conserving land, water and wildlife habitat in northwestern Hancock County by lending financial support to GPMCT. There are many ways to help!

Become a Conservation Leader – give monthly!

Automatic, monthly giving saves us both time, postage and trees! It’s a safe and easy way to make a big impact on your favorite organization – whether it’s $10, $25, or $100 each month. Did you know that giving just $86.50/month translates into an annual gift of $1,038—the height of Great Pond Mountain! With automatic giving, your membership will renew automatically each year, making your support effortless! And you can change or stop your gift anytime online or by phone. Donate online via credit card by clicking our Donate button, or use your bank’s automatic bill paying service.

Why be a member? Memberships in GPMCT support our annual operations, from Wildlands trail maintenance, habitat management and kids’ programs to newsletters and office supplies. Benefits of membership include our bi-annual newsletter The MountainEar; invitations to special events; and an invitation to attend our annual meeting each July, where as a member you’ll be entitled to vote on the business of the organization.

Endowment Gifts

Your gift to our General Endowment or our Wildlands Stewardship Endowment will help us pay expenses far into the future, and meet our stewardship responsibilities. Make your endowment or stewardship gift online via Paypal or send us a check, and be sure to note what it’s for (on Paypal, click on “Add Special Instructions”).

Gifts of Securities and In-Kind Donations

Giving appreciated securities may provide a tax advantage (be sure to consult your tax advisor). If you wish to give a gift of securities or help GPMCT with an in-kind donation, please call our office at (207) 469-6929 or e-mail info@greatpondtrust.org for instructions.

Make a Legacy Gift

Please consider naming GPMCT in your will – and there are many other ways that supporting our work can figure in your estate planning, possibly creating a tax advantage for you. Please contact the GPMCT office to discuss your plans, and consult your own attorney or financial advisor before making these important decisions.

Sponsor a Special Project or Event

Support the Wildlands Trail Run, Christmas Greens Gathering, or other GPMCT event and get some great PR for your business or organization! Wildlands Stewardship projects often need matches. Call or e-mail us for the latest sponsorship info. Sponsor a newsletter with your gift of $1,000 – or underwrite a special program at any level. Gifts can be mailed or questions addressed to:
