NextGen Advisory Board

A special holiday message from the NextGen Advisory Board: 

Fellow NextGener,

Aren’t we the lucky ones? We are the envy of all our friends and family. We get to live in one of the most beautiful places in the country. We have quiet spaces, dog walks, sunset hikes, morning runs, and peaks to summit right out our back doors. We have wide open spaces, iconic wildlife, and clean water running through our blue ribbon trout streams.  If you’re anything like us, you’ve made a choice to be here because of the landscape and the outdoor lifestyle.

But we can’t forget that great places like this don’t happen by accident. For decades people have been investing in the Gallatin Valley Land Trust to conserve special places and connect our community with trails. That work can’t stop now. In fact it is more important than ever. We need young people in this community to carry on this incredible legacy.

That’s why each one of us financially supports GVLT. Please, join us by making a donation today. As the next generation, we will be responsible for taking care of this place. We want to show our community that the future is in good hands.

How much you give isn’t important. The fact that you give is what matters. Feeling a pinch during the holidays? You can make an impact with just a $5 monthly donation to GVLT.

As the NextGen Advisory Board for GVLT, we’re interested in creating a community of young professionals who are investing in the future of this place and we want you to be a part of it. All NextGen’ers who give during this holiday season will be invited to join us for a special conversation (over beer of course). We want your input on how to build this giving commitment with our peers.

We need your help to protect the quality of life that brought us here and keeps us here.

Happy Trails,

GVLT NextGen Advisory Board

They raise awareness of GVLT in the community, particularly with their peers. NextGen members plan opportunities for younger community members to engage with GVLT through events and volunteering.
