As the year draws to a close, we would like to use this opportunity to express our heartfelt thanks to you. Whether you made a gift of money or time this year, your support helps to protect, preserve and care for significant natural landscapes in the Kawarthas.

Like many other charities, we compete for funding from government and foundations. But our accomplishments are largely enabled by the gifts we receive from donors like you.

We are currently working toward securing a couple magnificent properties in the Kawarthas, we can’t name them just yet, but stay tuned for their announcement in early 2017!

Help us reach our goal! If you haven’t already done so, we hope that you will consider a gift to KLT, without the continued support from people like you there are critical properties that will go unprotected. There is still time to receive a 2016 Charitable Tax Credit but we need to receive your donation by December 31st.

Once again thank you for your continued support of our efforts.

The Kawartha Land Trust Team
