Monthly Recurring Donations

Supporting Gathering Waters: Wisconsin’s Alliance for Land Trusts helps protect the most loved and needed places throughout the state. Becoming a monthly recurring donor—joining what we call our Sustainers Circle—can benefit you, as well as Wisconsin’s special places.

Set up monthly recurring donations to simplify the donations process, spread out financial impact on you, and improve cash flow for Gathering Waters. 

Simplify the donation process

When you sign up to give a recurring donation online, there are no checks to mail and no reminders needed. If you’d like a regular confirmation of your recurring donations, we can send you an email regarding your upcoming gift. This helps reduce the amount of paper we use, which is better for the environment and enables us to allocate more resources directly to advocacy and land trust support!

Spreading out financial impact for you

A monthly gift allows you to spread the financial impact of your giving across the entire year. Even small increases to your monthly gifts over time can have a big impact.

Improving cash flow for Gathering Waters

Generally, our costs are spread out evenly throughout the year, but we receive a majority of our income in the last quarter. Making monthly donations helps us build a steady stream of recurring gifts which reduce imbalances and provides much needed support during fallow periods.

A strong monthly recurring donation program can also help improve our long-range planning and decision-making. Revenue from recurring donations is far more predictable than revenue from one time gifts which helps us better forecast our revenue. This allows us to plan and make decisions for our advocacy work and the growing needs of Wisconsin’s land trust community, ensuring more of Wisconsin’s special places are being protected in perpetuity.
