Double Your Donation!

Sally McConnell TEdge 500x500

One of the Preserve’s enthusiastic and continuing supporters, Sally McConnell, has increased her matching contribution by another $10,000 to help save the West Klosterman Preserve.

Sally has been a long-time supporter of environmental and preservation causes in Pinellas County. Starting with her own home in St. Petersburg, where she transformed a traditional suburban site into a showplace for native planting and sustainability, to preservation projects such as the West Klosterman Preserve, she has made her part of the world a better place. Her generosity has also supported education, the arts, and programs for supporting children’s needs.

Now Sally wants to thank you for helping her make a difference for the West Klosterman Preserve. She has increased her commitment to match your contribution from her original commitment of up to $25,000 to a match of up to $35,000. Together, you and Sally can make double the difference in reaching our goal! But you need to make your commitment now while the matching contribution is still available.

Please help Sally and the WK Preservation Group secure the property for the West Klosterman Preserve by making a donation.

$50 that will be $100
$100 that will be $200
$500 that will be $1000
or more!

  • Even if you’ve donated in the past, consider giving a new gift and Sally will match dollar for dollar, up to $35,000!
  • Your donation will count toward and double the number of ribbons   added to the WK Preserve fence in the Green DeFence campaign. 
  • Pull out those old WKPG yard signs (or let us know if you’d be open to purchasing a new one) to get the word out.
  • Share our social posts and tell your friends – “Hey, did you hear that the WK Preserve folks are back in fundraising mode?”
  • Does your employer offer a donation matching program?
  • Look for creative ways to show your support and share your ideas for fundraising with us! We’ve seen great success with sign-waving and letter-writing campaigns – what else can we do to raise awareness? Let us know!
