Northumberland Land Trust Endowment Fund

Preserving Northumberland County - one acre at a time.


The Northumberland Land Trust is committed to preserving the natural, historical and cultural heritage of Northumberland County.

Their mandate is to establish, maintain and manage protected areas.

As a charity, the Land Trust can…

  • accept donations of land
  • fundraise to secure and manage selected properties
  • enter into conservation agreements for the permanent protection of natural landscapes, forests, farms and waterways
  • provide public education and information on land conservation tools.

The Land Trust is governed by a volunteer board of directors representing a cross section of the community including landowners, farmers, business people and professionals.

A Permanent Endowment Fund

This is the first Agency Endowment Fund to be set up with the Community Foundation. By establishing their own fund, the Northumberland Land Trust now has a permanent source of funding for their organization. They benefit from knowing a trusted organization is managing their Fund so they can concentrate on their mission - preserving Northumberland County.

Anyone can donate to this endowment fund, and earnings from the fund will be distributed to Northumberland Land Trust on an annual basis for operational activities. The Foundation will issue a charitable receipt for all donations to the fund in accordance with the Income Tax Act.
