FSM is pleased to launch the Alan E. Hutchinson Memorial Campaign. As you know, Alan served as the first executive director of the Forest Society of Maine (FSM) and did so for 20 years. Under Alan’s leadership, FSM helped to conserve one million acres of forestland through an inclusive approach that brought together people who have diverse views but share a common goal of sustaining the unique forested landscape of Maine’s North Woods.
To honor Alan, FSM intends to double its Conservation Opportunities Endowment Fund by raising one million dollars. This fund provides FSM with an annual source of revenue to help with the costs of conservation project development and realization. We are striving to reach the campaign goal by August 27, 2018—the one year anniversary of Alan’s passing.
Thank you very much for considering participating in this very special effort to commemorate a man who was a rare leader and who did so much for the conservation of Maine’s North Woods. Your contribution will recognize Alan’s past efforts and will help FSM fulfill the vision for the future that Alan hoped for. This vision is reflected in FSM’s long-term strategic plan, which is based on input from many of you.
To make a contribution you may send a check made out to FSM with Hutchinson Campaign in the memo line, or you can click here to make a secure gift online. You may also make a gift of stock, but please contact Janice at our office for more information: (207) 945-9200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
