There are Many ways You Can Help!

Our 2017 Year End Campaign was a wonderful success!  We are humbled, grateful, and impressed with the way our members, new friends, and neighbors showed their support throughout our Year End Campaign. Thanks to your generosity, we exceeded our goal of raising $10,000. This funding will help us do what we do best – connect you to your community and conserve land.

Owned by Winnakee Land Trust, Drayton Grant Park at Burger Hill is one of the highest points in the Town of Rhinebeck.

Rather 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.

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. Click here to DONATE TODAY


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.
