Our Places Endowment Campaign

Our Places Endowment Campaign Goal is to raise $1,000,000 by the end of 2017 to help ensure PDLT will be able to meet our mission in perpetuity.  

PDLT is making great progress with “Our Places”, the second phase of our Operating Endowment campaign to support our mission and uphold our conservation agreements in perpetuity. The PDLT Endowment now stands at more than 84% of our goal to reach $1 million prior to the end of 2017. More than $400,000 was contributed by 31 “Stewards of the Pee Dee” who each donated $10,000 or more during the first phase (2008 - 2014) of the endowment campaign. The staff and board of Pee Dee Land Trust wish to express our sincere gratitude for those who have given so generously as Guardian ($50,000), Sustaining Stewards (multiple gifts of $10,000), Stewards ($10,000), and at every level.

Contributions can be made in gifts of cash, appreciated stock, and even real estate. For more information, contact David Harper, Executive Director, at This email address is being protected from spambots.

The roots of Pee Dee Land Trust’s Our Places endowment campaign can be found in the generous contributions of the Stewards of the Pee Dee.
