This week's launch of the Generations Campaign, Upstate Forever's ambitious $7 million fundraising initiative, was an experience I won't soon forget. What an honor it was to gather with so many members of the Upstate community that share one common goal: Ensuring this special place retains its natural beauty and high quality of life long into the future.

Upstate Forever has a proven track record — click here to view 25 successes from our 25 years — but we need your support if we want Upstate communities and the remarkable natural assets that define them to thrive for generations to come.

Whether you're an old friend of the organization or a recent supporter, I invite you to learn more about the Generations Campaign and the critical conservation and advocacy work it will fund in the years to come. Keep scrolling to re-live the campaign launch celebration, stream the Generations video, and make a gift that will benefit the people and places you love.

A celebration to remember

We were blown away by the community's enthusiasm and support as we celebrated the launch of the Generations Campaign at Greenville's Annex at Judson Mill on Tuesday evening!

Advocates, landowners, conservationists, and supporters joined UF's staff and Board of Directors to hear Board Chair John Keith, Generations Campaign Co-Chair John Bauknight, and Executive Director share more info about this campaign and the importance of now. Many thanks to the Reedy River String Band for their lively entertainment and to all who made this event a success!

Big places like Table Rock. Little places like Soapstone Church. And all the parks, farmlands, forests, rivers, and lakes in between. These are the natural gems and cultural keystones Upstate Forever staff work day in and day out to protect.
