Financial Information

Save the Redwoods League revenue comes from individuals, foundations, corporations, government agencies and investments.
As is common in land conservation, the transaction cycle of purchasing, holding and transferring land for Save the Redwoods League often requires several years for completion. While land and forests are protected from the time the League acquires them, the League often remains a steward of those lands until they can be transferred to a public agency or nonprofit land trust for ongoing stewardship, public access and permanent protection. The program expense is recognized only when a property is transferred to its permanent steward, or when a conservation easement is acquired. Since land divestments and conservation easement acquisitions are episodic and markedly affect the League's expense ratio from year to year, we believe a five-year rolling average is a more meaningful depiction of our program expense ratio.

Save the Redwoods League is exempt from federal income taxation under Section 501(C)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Our revenue comes from individuals, foundations, corporations, government agencies and investments. With these generous donations, since 1918, the League has protected and restored redwood forests and connected people with their peace and beauty so these wonders of the natural world flourish.

Unfortunately, some ancient redwoods remain unprotected, and forests that are protected face threats from a changing environment, disease and devastating government budget cuts. Your donations help us save these special places, allowing us to purchase redwood land, restore logged forests, study how to best protect them and teach children and adults about these magical expressions of life.
