Gifts to McHenry County Conservation Foundation bridge the gap between public funding and the increasing cost of maintaining public lands and providing people with quality programs and outdoor recreational opportunities. We help protect McHenry's special places.  By supporting the Conservation Foundation you will join an important group of people that care about the future of our McHenry County, its treasured places, and the quality of life for all present and future residents.

What better way to honor someone than by planting trees for future generations? Donate native trees and shrubs to commemorate a loved one, celebrate a special occasion, or just to restore the oak savannas and woodlands of McHenry County.

Event Sponsorship
Each June we host the annual Pedal Paddle Saddle friendraisinging event. The financial support from local business sponsors toward the event not only ensures its success, but also strengthens the awareness of the Foundation's mission.  The benefits of event sponsorship are reciprical. Depending upon the level of support, a benefit package is provided including recognition on marketing materials, t-shirts and social media platforms. 

Regardless of how you choose to give, your donation helps protect our precious natural heritage and supports the goals and objectives of McHenry County Conservation District. We value your gifts of time and support.
