JMLT spends 87%, a very high percentage, of funds on programs. Our revenue comes from the generous support of individuals, foundations, corporations, government agencies and other sources. As the transaction cycle in land conservation takes several years, here’s a look at five-year averages:

FIVE YEARS 2010 - 2014

*Program includes land acquisition, conservation activities, and environmental education & outreach. With the support of people like you, we’ve protected and we steward 3,500 stunning acres in the East Bay, and our goal is to double that over the next five years.


JMLT puts 87 cents of every dollar directly into land acquisition, stewardship, and other programs. For every $1 contributed by individuals, we receive $3 from other sources --- that means your dollar works even harder as it gets multiplied 3x to protect land held in perpetuity --- for future generations to come! Any way you look at it, your donation to JMLT goes a very long way. Donate today.
