Introducing the Generations Campaign

April 11th, 2024

Big places like Table Rock. Little places like Soapstone Church. Urban parks, state parks, trails, farmlands, rivers, forests, ponds, and lakes. These places are our lifeblood, and for 25 years, protecting them has been our passion.

With the Generations Campaign, we are on a mission to secure $7 million to safeguard the Upstate’s natural resources in the midst of significant regional growth.

This campaign isn’t about changing what we do. It’s about doing more of it. Because that’s what it’s going to take if we want Upstate communities and the remarkable natural assets that define them to thrive for generations to come.

Your support will fund our work through 2027

By supporting the Generations Campaign, you're enabling our staff to meet the challenges Upstate SC is facing, amplify Upstate Forever's impact, and accelerate protections for the region’s lands and waters in the years ahead.

The funds raised will go towards three key initiatives, our primary strategic goals from 2023-2027:

  • Broadening and deepening core land protection efforts to reach a milestone of 50,000 acres protected through UF conservation easements and collaborative partner projects.
  • Advocating for policies that support balanced growth and conservation at the municipal, regional, and state level, and increase funding for conservation across the Upstate.
  • Reaching more residents — especially younger residents and people of color — and equipping them with the tools they need to protect the places they love.
