Give Today for a Better Tomorrow

If you’ve been looking for a good cause, it’s this.

It can take years, even decades, to preserve and protect land.

You can help preserve, defend, and restore the natural lands on and around Mount Diablo by making a donation for yourself or in honor or memory of a loved one, donating land or your vehicle, leaving Save Mount Diablo a bequest, donating your IRA distribution, or shopping in our store.

Having resources allows us to plan long-term and to act quickly on preserving critical high conservation value resource land when government agencies cannot.

Donate Online, by Phone, or by Mail

You can make a tax-deductible online donation online using the form on the left;

Call Save Mount Diablo’s office at (925) 947-3535;

Or if you prefer, you may print and fill out our donation form and mail it with your check to 1901 Olympic Blvd., Suite 320, Walnut Creek, CA 94596.

More Ways to Give

Tribute and Memorial Giving

You can honor that very special person by making a gift to Save Mount Diablo in their name. Consider a tribute gift for birthdays, anniversaries, remembrances, or just as a way of saying “I care about you.” Your donation in honor of someone is a terrific way to express your admiration for that person while at the same time sharing your concern for the protection of our Contra Costa County and Mount Diablo environments. We will send a beautiful card to the honoree or their family letting them know of your gift.

If you would like to make a memorial or tribute gift, simply include a note with your mailed check or online donation that states the name of the person you are honoring and to whom you would like us to send a letter advising them of your gift.

Corporate Matching

Often companies will double—or even triple—their employees’ charitable contributions, increasing the impact of your gift. Your employer might offer this benefit! By taking advantage of the matching gift program at your workplace, you can double or even triple your contribution to Save Mount Diablo, perhaps move up into a different membership category with additional benefits and save even more of Diablo’s wild lands.
