I will tell you that I am involvrd with many Nonprofits in the Doylestown area but what makes the Heritage Conservancy so special are the Employees of this Organization. It is a pleasure to work with people who are so dedicated to what they do and spend every moment of the day trying to make this organization better and better. Historic Preservation is very important in Bucks County and because of the large open spaces of land Agriculture is important to the county also. It is great to see a Dedicated team of professionals work together to make our County a better place to live. Because of this we are making headlines of one of the best places to live in the USA.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Money! Everyone knows what we have been going through and it gets tougher and tougher for Nonprofits to do what they are fighting for every day without the proper Funding and support because the economy is suffering.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Without this organization where would we be in Bucks County. We represent wonderful farms and buildings from hundreds of years ago. New construction just can not compare to history!!!!!!

I value so much the opportunity to volunteer with the Heritage Conservancy and appreciate the chance to be involved with an organization whose mission and values are so closely aligned with my own. It is a privelege to work with the breadth of knowledge and level of commitment the staff provides in reaching its goals. The Heritage Conservancy does and will continue to play an increasingly vital role in the ecomonic success of Bucks County as it provides a key component with its various land conservation initiatives.

The Great!

One thing I'd also say is that...

I love being a part of it. Also, that it's accessible. I love being involved.

We are so fortunate to have an organization like Heritage Conservancy in the Bucks County area. Needless to say, the preservation of open space is more and more important as the years pass. Heritage Conservancy has been instrumental in the preservation of contiguous properties throughout the area. They realize the importance of conservation and education. They make an incredible effort to include the community in their conservation efforts which only strengthens the organization and the movement for land conservation amongst community members. We are all so fortunate for their success and need to continue to support their efforts.

The Great!

The preservation of critical habitat.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their dedication to conservation and the community.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

so dedicated to the mission of the organization. It's amazing.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help strengthen the numbers of more native species that currently can't survive with such limited habitat.

Ways to make it better...

I could recruit more members to support the organization.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

finding available land that they can afford to preserve and finding more community and business members to step up and support the mission.

One of Heritage Conservancy’s many missions is to enhance regional planning so conservatory programs can be implemented to oversee and protect available farmland and open space. Because of our close proximity to Philadelphia and NYC developers, home builders and other professionals are always seeking ways to utilize these available lands for sole entrepreneurial gain with little concern for the environmental impact upon our area. The Heritage Conservancy tries to balance these two goals. As a board member once said to me “both are not exclusive of each other”. Both can be accomplished with good planning, implementation and education. The Heritage Conservancy is a wonderful example of how businesses and a non-profit environmental agency can work together to build a beautiful community with new construction, while protecting open space, wildlife and our other natural resources. It is my hope that your organization will honor the Heritage Conservancy with your prestigious grant

I am so proud to be a part of this organization. Their mission for land preservation and historic preservation in Bucks County is very important to the community and the environment. The preservation of our agricultural resources is so important to the longevity of the earth and life as we know it, and Heritage Conservancy has preserved so much farmland in Bucks County. I am happy to support this mission.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the preservation of countless farms in Bucks County, as well as preservation of some of our most important historic buildings and resources in Bucks County as well.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

run it quite the same as it is running now. I am incredibly proud to be a part of the Heritage mission.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with such wonderful staff and other volunteers like myself. The staff members who help with this committee are second to none. Sandy Yerger is an inspirational leader and Robin Folkert has a keen sense of the direction of this organization.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

incredibly knowledgable and helpful to the volunteers. Without them we would have no direction. They keep things running smoothly at all times.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

preserve countless more properties for agricultural resources. There is nothing more important to our earth than the preservation of our nations farmland.

Ways to make it better...

the economy had not been hit so hard in recent years. Obtaining funding is one our most difficult challenges at this very difficult time in our economic history. We strive to bring in more businesses for financial support, but times are tough.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding. In these difficult economic times, finding the support of businesses in the community is more difficult than ever.
