Please click one of the links below to start or continue your support as a Winnakee Member. Membership dues may also be paid by mail with a check or credit card.



Rather than make a one-time donation, you can opt for monthly giving. It’s easy to do and ensures that Winnakee has a greater measure of financial stability in its annual budget. Your recurring monthly donation ensures that we will continue to protect our farms, forests, and wetlands. Click here to become a SUSTAINING MEMBER (click the ‘make this a monthly recurring donation’ button.)

You can donate with confidence, knowing that you are contributing to an accredited, effective, fiscally responsible organization that’s having a real impact on local land and our quality of life.



Often companies will double – or even triple – their employees’ charitable contributions, increasing the impact of your gift. Some employers also match gifts made by retirees, spouses, and board members. Check whether your employer offers this benefit! By taking advantage of the matching gift program at your workplace, you can double or even triple your contribution to Winnakee.
