Upstate Forever is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization relying on generous contributions from people like you. Here’s how you can help Upstate Forever defend your natural resources and promote balanced growth.
You can also become a citizen water monitor through the SC Adopt A Stream program, which is led in partnership by SC Department of Health and Environmental Control and the CU Center for Watershed Excellence. Upstate Forever was instrumental in advocating for a statewide Adopt A Stream program.
Upstate Forever has no open positions at this time. To receive updates about future opportunities, join our email newsletter list at upstateforever.org/email, or follow us on social media on LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
Upstate Forever does not have internships on a regular schedule, but we do occasionally engage interns for specific projects based on qualifications and availability. If you would like to be considered for future opportunities, please send your resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wear your Upstate pride while supporting our work. When you make a gift of $25 or more, we'll send you our limited edition 25th anniversary t-shirt. Available in adult sizes S - 2XL while supplies last.
Upstate Forever celebrates 25 years of conservation and advocacy in 2023, but we could not do this important work without you. Join us as we reflect on just a few of the successes your support has made possible.
The latest edition of our twice-yearly publication celebrates Upstate Forever's 25 years of hard work, in addition to sharing the latest news and conservation successes from our team.
The SC State Legislature recently included $10 million in the 2023-2024 budget towards the purchase of the Saluda Grade Trail, which will run through Northern Spartanburg and Greenville Counties into the mountains of Western NC.
Six properties totaling 735 acres in Anderson, Greenville, and Pickens Counties were recently protected. These lands will be protected in perpetuity through conservation easements.
Your planned gift can help us achieve our goals for current and future generations, while you enjoy a wide variety of tax benefits.
