Ring Challenge Grant: Progress Report


First of all, thank you to everyone who has made a gift to the Ring “Challenge” Grant. Thanks to your generosity, we closed on the “Triple Z” property at the first of this year. And, we now are protecting a 4,000 acre area of contiguous, preserved wetland. Only by combining the leverage of the Ring Container Technologies financial contribution of $230,000 along with your individual gifts were we able to accomplish this significant conservation project which will help to protect the Memphis Sand Aquifer and our clean drinking water.

You can still make contributions now toward the Ring “Challenge” Grant which will help support the Wolf River Conservancy’s land conservation mission. We hope to announce, in the next few months, a new conservation project(s) to qualify for the remaining $270,000 from the original $500,000 challenge grant generously provided by Ring Container Technologies. Your gift will help us meet the current challenge and successfully launch the next phase of this effort to preserve the Wonder of the Wolf.

Please give generously knowing that every dollar you give will be multiplied to save $3.46 of unspoiled wetlands here, forever.

For more information, please contact Barbara Kabakoff, Chief Development Officer, at 901-452-6500, x. 110,
