Today, the endowment covers almost half of our annual operating expenses. Generous financial support from our donors plays a significant role in covering the rest and is critical to the success of Floracliff’s land stewardship and nature-based educational programs.
With your help, we can continue the legacy Dr. Mary Wharton started.
