Why Donate?

  Neighbors helping neighbors is what Golden Sands RC&D is all about. Since 1972, we have been working across county lines to address local concerns and make Central Wisconsin a better place to live and work. We rely on donations to fund our programs. After losing some of our federal funding, we need your help more than ever to preserve the Golden Sands region we all know and love for future generations.

How Does My Donation Help?
  Consider your donation an investment in the world your grandchildren will inherit. Thanks to past support, we have been able to make a difference with programs like these:
  The Central Wisconsin Prairie Chicken Festival. Every spring we give visitors a chance to observe and learn about the wildlife that makes our grasslands their home.

  The Oak Island/Fern Island County Park Volunteer Party in Wausau. This annual event has been instrumental in giving the area new life, reducing invasive species and giving native plants a chance to grow back.

  The Lakeshore Restoration Demo Project at Jordan Park in Portage County. This program continues to serve as an example of successful lake restoration and hosts educational field trips.
Will My Donation Really Make a Difference?
  Every donation helps. Whether you support our ongoing farming education programs, our preservation efforts for local forests and rivers, or our central administrative needs, your financial support directly translates into a real difference in Central Wisconsin.
  Here are some examples of what your money may fund:
  •     $50 funds 1 classroom lesson for 5th graders to learn about water issues.
  •     $100 funds a day of clean up and invasive species removal at one of our precious lakes.
  •     $250 funds a free consultation for a farmer interested in Management Intensive Grazing.
  •     $25,000 could provide permanent protection of 10 acres of critical grassland habitat for rare and unique wildlife.
