ICE AGE TRAIL ALLIANCE
Total Raised: $1,415.00
The mission of the Ice Age Trail Alliance is to create, support and protect a thousand-mile footpath tracing Ice Age formations across Wisconsin — the Ice Age National Scenic Trail. It is a place where all people can enjoy and embrace the unique natural landscape of Wisconsin. It is where people find physical and mental renewal in a peaceful setting. The Fontana Challenge Grant funds will support the Alliance’s ongoing efforts to sustain this outdoor oasis and foster an enduring spiritual connection to the land.
Total Raised: $855.00
On behalf of its more than 30,000 members, supporters, and coalition partners, Clean Wisconsin protects and preserves Wisconsin's clean air, clean water, and natural heritage. The funds we raise through the Fontana Sports Environmental Grant Challenge will directly support our legal, policy, and advocacy programs that work toward implementing sustainable, long-term solutions to Wisconsin’s major environmental challenges.
NATURAL HERITAGE LAND TRUST
Total Raised: $260.00
Natural Heritage Land Trust protects some of the most beautiful places in Dane County, forever. We save special places because they ensure clean drinking water, provide wildlife habitat, and places for our community to relax, play, and connect. Your support will help purchase land to enlarge Lake View Elementary’s outdoor classroom. With 80% of the students from low-income families with limited opportunities to experience the natural world, this outdoor classroom is one of the only opportunities some students have to find connection between themselves, their community, and the natural environment.
SOUTHERN WISCONSIN TROUT UNLIMITED
Total Raised: $245.00
SWTU has been supporting the restoration and conservation of cold water resources in Dane and Jefferson Counties, and southern Wisconsin in general, since 1969. As one of the largest chapters of Trout Unlimited in Wisconsin, numbering over 800 members, we have long been involved in many projects, programs, and events supporting our primary mission to conserve, protect and restore cold water fisheries and their watersheds in southern Wisconsin. Being a completely volunteer-run group we have very little overhead and most of our raised funds and donations go directly toward these programs.
RIVER ALLIANCE OF WISCONSIN
Total Raised: $120.00
The River Alliance of Wisconsin is a nonprofit with 23 years of success in empowering Wisconsinites to protect our state's incredible water resources. River Alliance helps everyday people become leaders--water champions--who effectively advocate for a thriving community, economy, and habitat through access to clean, abundant water. Your support funds action alerts on water policy, advocacy training workshops, technical assistance in organizational development, fundraising, communications and other strategies for policy reform; aquatic invasive species prevention training and support; and much more. Thank you!
MADISON AUDUBON SOCIETY
Total Raised: $90.00
Madison Audubon believes that protecting and celebrating Wisconsin's amazing birds and other natural gifts means great things for our environment, our health, and our communities. Support from the Fontana Sports Environmental Grant Challenge would help manage 1500+ acres of beautifully-restored habitats at our wildlife sanctuaries, provide free programs and field trips to the public, and support fun, meaningful nature education programming for curious kids in schools and community centers.
