Trust for Public Land’s leading benefactors—donors whose total giving to TPL is $5 million or more—are recognized as members of the Evergreen Circle. In its inaugural year, the Evergreen Circle counts 42 generous individuals, families, corporations, and foundations among its ranks. Together, these generous donors have contributed over $500 million to TPL since our founding.

Evergreen Circle donors include individuals, foundations, and corporations who have donated $5 million or more to TPL.
Evergreen Circle supporters are invited to participate in special events, provided with opportunities to interact with TPL leadership, and receive special communications and updates. Evergreen Circle supporters are honored for their generosity on a designated Evergreen Circle web page on TPL.org.
Evergreen Circle eligibility is determined by gifts received (pledges, bequest commitments, land or in-kind donations do not qualify). Gifts in support of TPL Action Fund/The Conservation Campaign (TCC), TPL’s former associated 401(c)4, also count. Gifts directed through family foundations or other private foundations that are attributed to an individual may be included in calculating individual lifetime giving totals for Evergreen Circle recognition.
