Donation & Gift Options

Your donations preserve the Teton Valley we all care about: wildlife, farms, rivers and open space. By giving online and/or through monthly gifts,  we can advocate for you throughout the year, connect you with your local decision makers, and provide up-to-the-minute updates on local government and community actions affecting you!

So please:

Gift Memberships

Give the gift of smart growth and planning for birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, and to honor special occasions.  When you give a gift membership, your friends and loved ones will receive a card describing your gift.

Wedding Registry
In addition, you can now share your love for Teton Valley when you get married — many couples are incorporating socially conscious values into their wedding planning.  By registering with the I Do Foundation, you can make it easy for guests to make donations in lieu of gifts.  100% of guest donations will go to VARD.

Memorial Gifts
Make a donation in honor of a friend or loved one.  We will list your memorial gift in our newsletter and will acknowledge your gift to the person or family of honor, without mention of the gift’s amount.
