Support Us Today!
We rely on membership dues, donations, grants, and program and publications revenues to fund our educational programs, support services, and advocacy. We receive no state or federal government funding. With staffing and funding reductions at the state and federal environmental agencies, our services are in ever-greater demand and needed more than ever. Your contribution will help us maintain and expand our critical work with conservation commissions and in protecting wetlands, open space, and biological diversity throughout Massachusetts. You can designate your tax-deductible contribution to our Annual Fund and/or to one or more of our dedicated funds. Also, please consider MACC in your planned giving.

MACC’s Annual Fund supports all our programs and services. Your contribution to our Annual Fund will assure the continued success of our Fundamentals for Conservation Commissioner Training Program, Annual Environmental Conference, Fall Conference, and our environmental education workshops. It supports our Helpline (where we answer questions about implementation of the Wetlands Protection Act and acquisition and management of conservation lands), Conservation Quarterly, website, eMACC (every other week updates on advocacy issues and education programs), and allows us to undertake important new projects. For example we are creating an up-to-date database of local wetlands ordinances/bylaws and regulations, a key tool for communities across the state seeking to adopt and enhance local wetlands protection. Our Annual Fund also provides support we need to continue to be the voice for wetlands and open space protection in meetings with government officials and on advisory committees.
