Conservators Circle

GVLT’s Conservators Circle was founded in 2001 as a way to honor and engage donors who give $1,000 or more annually. Conservators Circle members are active, engaged members of our community who feel both the burden and the privilege of ensuring that this Valley retains the quality of life that brings us together and that GVLT strives to protect. As a member of the Conservators Circle, you will be the first to receive insider information on our latest trails and conservation projects, invitations to exclusive events,  your name will appear in our annual report, and more.

Safeguard open space and build trails for generations to come. 

Over the past decade, GVLT has grown to be one of the strongest, most respected Land Trusts in the nation. Your support has made that possible

Gallatin Valley Land Trust is one of the most trusted conservation organizations in the region, and for good reason.  In the more than 30 years since its inception, GVLT has conserved 50,000 acres of open space and constructed more than 90 miles of trails; trails that connect us to the land and to each other.  As a member of Conservators Circle, you’ll play a crucial role in helping us to protect these things we love and the quality of life we cherish.

Individuals, couples, families, or family foundations will receive recognition as Conservators Circle members with a gift of at least $1,000 annually.  Qualifying gifts must be unrestricted funds only to either the Operating Fund or the Endowment Fund.  In-kind gifts, Stewardship Fund donations, and easement fees do not apply.

“I give to GVLT because of my heritage of grain elevators, wide open fields of amber grain, being married to a rancher, and loving the wide open skies. As far as lifestyle, I give to GVLT because I love riding my bicycle.”– Daphne Gillam, Conservation Easement Owner and Conservators Circle Member.
