Land for Good: Spring Fundraising Campaign


Join us February 18 through May 20 to experience Land for Good, and to support nature and resilient communities for all. From our speaker series to self-guided walks, we will have something for everyone as you explore our work across the state.


For 30 years, Forterra has supported the communities of our region. We have worked with tribes, businesses, governments, communities, and nonprofits to innovate and act. This spring, we’re celebrating those who inspire this work and the places we love.

Why now?

Washington’s ecosystems and communities are being tested as never before. Communities are being uprooted and displaced. Open spaces, natural habitat and recreational land are threatened by irreversible conversion.

Forterra’s integrated projects, policy and programs create healthy ecosystems and resilient communities. Our work protects natural resources, supplants unsustainable development, helps underserved communities and responds to the climate crisis.

Our greatest strength is being nimble and flexible. With your support of Forterra, we have the ability to respond to the greatest needs and priorities within our mission as they arise.

The critical role of philanthropy

  • Philanthropy is the catalyst that ignites innovation and forges new partnerships and ventures.
  • Philanthropy allows us to have the stability and capacity to explore unconventional and innovative models of funding to stretch every dollar donated.
  • Your gift, combined with Forterra’s experience and resources, allows us to triple the impact of every dollar donated. For example, we recently leveraged $4.4 million in donor funds to raise $12 million for Forterra projects.
