I have a few different ideas about causes that I'd be interested in championing as a NSCF Board Member. I thought I'd post them here. I hope that with input from the other members, I can select one to move ahead with. Also, I hope the process of discussing the three different options is helpful for all.
The first potential candidate is the Interior AK Land Trust. They buy land or acquire development rights to protect green spaces and further conservation goals around the interior of AK. Preservation of these spaces and providing outdoor recreation opportunities is in an important community service. I really like the cause. I'm doing some work with them, but I have not yet approached them about the idea. I'm not sure they'd be receptive, but I think they would. They don't seem particularly invested in a particular fundraising strategy and I can imagine fundraising campaigns to buy a particular piece of land propagating well on social media.
