The Longleaf Giving Society Returns

Lowcountry Land Trust is thrilled to announce the reinstatement of our Longleaf Society, an annual donor society that honors lead donors.

This exclusive group is comprised of tiered circles that recognize both loyalty and generosity in giving. Longleaf Society members will enjoy a variety of benefits including in-depth updates and unprecedented access to the inner workings of the Lowcountry Land Trust.

In addition to being recognized in our newsletter and at the Longleaf Society Reception (formerly called Barn Dinner), circle members will enjoy perks such as personalized email updates, invitations to quarterly coffee sessions with our President and CEO, and opportunities to take part in intimate experience-based events with other Longleaf members.

At Lowcountry Land Trust, we count on our lead donors to be champions for conservation. Without the sustaining support of donors who are willing to invest at lead levels, we wouldn’t be able to continue our mission of protecting the Lowcountry quality of life for future generations. Lead donors are vital to our success, and reinstating this giving society is our way of saying thanks for making this work possible.
