Ways to Give
Donate or Join as a Member
CMLC works to conserve and care for the farms, forests, parks, mountains, streams, and scenic views that make our region special. Become a part of our mission by giving a donation. Annual gifts of $35 or more are given an annual membership. Discover the benefits of membership and how to donate!
CMLC offers an option for those who would like to increase their giving, or spread their contributions out over the course of a year. Our monthly giving program allows members to set up an automatic credit card draft with CMLC ($10/month minimum) that supports our mission directly. Click the "donate" button above and select recurring gifts as "monthy" or "quarterly." If your recurring gift totals at least $35 in a year you will also be eligible for an annual membership, even if you do not give a full $35 at the time your membership begins.
Become an Event Sponsor
CMLC’s annual events, the Bearwallow Beast and Conservation Celebration, are golden opportunities for businesses to get their name out into the community and associate it with a great cause. Find out more information about becoming a Guardians of the Green sponsor.
Members of this special society are our most generous individual supporters giving $1000 or more annually in support of our mission. These are our conservation champions and their investment has a lasting impact on the conservation future of our Blue Ridge Mountains. Learn more about our Summits Society.
CMLC is a proud member of Earthshare of North Carolina, a nonprofit helping North Carolinians support the environmental groups they value through workplace giving. Find out more about Workplace Giving.
Planned Giving is a great way to leave a lasting legacy for our Blue Ridge Mountains. Those who make planned gifts to CMLC become a part of our Land Legacy League recognizing their commitment to conserving our mountain heritage for future generations. Learn more about Planned Giving.
Honor and Memorial Gifts
A donation to CMLC is a great way to honor or remember your friends or loved ones. We'll recognize your gift and the honoree in our annual report and send notification to them or their family--just be sure to include their name and address on the donation form. Make an Honor or Memorial Gift.
You can increase the value of your donation. Many employers offer matching gift programs that may double or triple your contribution. Check with your human resources department. Fill out any matching gift forms and send it to CMLC along with your donation.

Gifts of securities provide another option for you to support our local conservation mission. Please get in touch with CMLC Development Director, Lynn Killian, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 828-697-5777 *202 to discuss coordinating your gift.
