Great Give: A Thank You!


Thank you to all the donors who gave so generously during the Great Give. As first-time participants in this wonderful event, we were overwhelmed by the support we received. We even exceeded our goal for this 2-day fundraiser!

In all, there were 67 donors who gave more than $5,300 to the Branford Land Trust, which includes a $500 prize from the Branford Community Foundation.

Congratulations to John Ruckes and Phil Carloni who each won a $100 gift certificate to one of Branford’s newest restaurants, Otolouse. All donors to the BLT who gave $25 or more were entered into a special drawing, which was held at our Annual Meeting on May 15.

The Great Give is a fundraiser coordinated through the Community Foundation of Greater New Haven on behalf of non-profits throughout the greater New Haven area. During the 36-hour event, more over 3.4 million dollars was raised for the more than 510 participating organizations.

As an all-volunteer organization, the funds raised during the Great Give will help support the many activities that volunteers undertake on behalf of the BLT to acquire, maintain, sustain, and educate the public about the land that is under our stewardship.
