The Nature Conservancy

Give Detroit – A Charitable Registry


To conserve the lands and waters upon which all life depends.


Founded in 1951, The Nature Conservancy works in 72 countries and all 50 states. It creates innovative, pragmatic, on-the-ground solutions to the world’s toughest challenges, so nature and people can thrive together. To achieve a sustainable future, TNC collaborates with local communities, governments, and the private sector. It is driven by four global priorities: protecting land and water at an unprecedented scale, tackling climate change, providing food and water sustainably, and helping to build healthier, more resilient cities. In Michigan, these global priorities drive the organization to focus locally. It collaborates with business, the agricultural and forest sectors, environmental and conservation groups, and government and local communities statewide, for the benefit of both people and nature.
