CROATAN INSTITUTE'S CANOPY COMMUNITY
CANOPY COMMUNITY MEMBERS WILL SUPPORT THE INSTITUTE WITH A GIFT TO BE FULFILLED BY THE END OF 2024

Pledge your support of Croatan Institute with a meaningful, sustainable gift.

Croatan Institute has launched an ambitious three-year fundraising campaign—the Canopy Community—to support the critical priorities identified in our Strategic Plan 2021-2023. We invite you to join our community of highly engaged donors to deepen our roots as an organization to create an equitable world where finance supports flourishing communities, vibrant places, and resilient economies.

Join with other Canopy Community members and provide the Institute with critical unrestricted funding to pursue the following Strategic Priorities:

  • Fully integrate equity and justice across programs and operations
  • Diversify revenue streams and build development capacity
  • Enhance operational capacity by strengthening organizational governance and streamlining our programs and communications
  • With your support, we will foster change by redirecting finance to support social equity and ecological resilience, making finance more accessible for place-based practitioners and frontline communities, and supporting the increasingly missing “middle” in social and economic life—in agriculture, rural communities, and small businesses.

 

As a member of the Canopy Community you will support the Institute’s critical needs at this stage of development, and build connections with other Canopy Community members through unique opportunities to interact with our team and our many placed-based partners. By joining this community which is accessible at a variety of levels, the Institute is offering special recognition to individuals and organizations through our website and printed materials, and prioritized access to events and additional opportunities to sponsor our high impact field building initiatives through the end of the campaign period.

The Institute also accepts Named Endowment Gifts of $150,000 or more, for donors seeking to be recognized for their legacy support. Named endowment gift donors are accorded the full benefits of every level of the Canopy Community.

Canopy Community members will support the Institute with a gift to be fulfilled by the end of 2024.
