Membership and Giving


The Ivy Creek Foundation depends on its membership donations to maintain its trails and facilities at the Ivy Creek Natural Area and to design and implement its educational programs. Those who join are the Friends of Ivy Creek.  If you are already a Friend, please consider giving a gift membership to a friend, family member, or colleague.

Your membership supports the field trips we provide to over 2,000 local school children annually, the Ivy Talks programs on second Sundays in the spring and fall, the many native flora and fauna walks and talks we lead, and many other programs that connect hundreds of people to nature every year.

Corporate Giving

Let us know where you work. Some companies match their employees’ charitable monetary gifts. Others will make donations to charities based on their employees’ volunteer hours! Check the charitable giving policy of your company or send us the information and we will. This is an easy way to leverage your contribution to our work!

In Kind Contributions

The Foundation also appreciates gifts in kind. Currently we are hopeful for contributions of:

  • Bird seed -- sunflower, all year round
  • A shopvac for cleaning the barn
