I have been a NatGen donor since it started as a non-profit (previously NMG). I have the highest level of confidence that my donation is thoughtfully used and impactful. Volunteers are truly dedicated and the Nat Gen staff/board is passionate about achieving the mission. One of the best non-profits around!!!

Newton Marasco Foundation is a motivated and vibrant organization with a passion for their mission to work collaboratively on issues related to environmental stewardship. It is the dedication of staff and volunteers that assure my contributions are used wisely and efficiently on programs that I care about. NMF is at the top of my list for donations throughout the year and end of the year. It is a pleasure to know that I am helping to make a difference.

I've contributed to Newton Marasco Foundation since it was established. The Foundation creates and runs excellent programs, accomplishing many goals. The partnerships and collaboration with schools, corporations, and communities is wonderful.

I have been a donor and board member of the Nature Generation for over 5 years. While I have served with other organizations, this one is truly making a difference in an area that effects all of us - the education of our next generation, and how each of them can make a difference. NatGen reaches out to our youth on multiple levels, and gets them interested in nature, and our environment. What could be more important?? People definitely need to consider this worthy cause - they ROCK!
