The Calvin Ecosystem Preserve & Native Gardens relies on generous donors to support our education and land management work. By investing in the Ecosystem Preserve, you can secure its impact on the thousands of children, college and university students, and adults who benefit from its programs each year and ensure that this irreplaceable habitat for hundreds of plants and animal species is maintained. All gifts of all sizes work together to make a big impact.

Giving to our Endowment Fund & Planned Giving

Donors have already begun to help us close the gap and reach our endowment goal. The Harry A. & Margaret D. Towsley Foundation and The Loutit Foundation have both supported us with gifts to our endowment. With the addition of their donations, we are pleased to announce that our Endowment Fund has reached $1.1 million. We hope that you will consider helping us bring that total closer to our target of $5 million.

Reaching the $5 million mark will ensure we are able to care for this place and are able to leave nature for the next generation.

Contributions at any level help us get closer to our goal! Donations can be made online or by contacting the Calvin Advancement Office if you are interested in remembering the Calvin Ecosystem Preserve & Native Gardens in your will and other planned gifts.
