Ecology Center Donation
With environmental concerns at an all-time high, ACCPF is leading the way for community conservation efforts. The newly envisioned Wetlands "Eco Center" is poised as a hub for environmental education based on close proximity to the Wetlands opportunity for hands-on learning. Your donation to the Wetlands Ecology Center will:
Provide a home for environmental education, nature art, and science programs for students and community members in Napa County and beyond
Strengthen American Canyon as a leader in environmental leadership, research, and programming
Harness the power of our diverse community to further the conservation movement.
"Root” our families in nature and develop the next generation of nature lovers who will help solve our most complex environmental issues.
Gifts of appreciated securities such as stocks and bonds offer substantial tax advantages, such as forgiveness of the tax on capital gains and a charitable income tax deduction for their fair market value. In order to maximize your capital gains savings, we encourage you to transfer securities directly to ACCPF rather than selling them and then making a cash donation.
