Officials with El Paso’s Frontera Land Alliance announced Monday that the organization has received a $5,000 matching donation in support of its work.
Field and Cutler expressed their thanks for the donation and the donor’s commitment to open space preservation and education.
“Until May 24th, every dollar donated to Frontera will be matched by a dollar from our anonymous donor up to $5,000. Thus, each donor’s contribution to Frontera will be doubled. And the donation is tax deductible,” said Janaé Reneaud Field, Frontera’s Executive Director.
Frontera’s President, Scott Cutler, added that “this is the perfect way for donors to increase their donation’s impact on Frontera’s work preserving working and open space lands in the region that we serve (Far-West Texas and Southern NM).”
Frontera’s staff and eight-member Board of Directors remain hard at work stewarding the lands already in its care and developing three potential new land-conservation easements that will preserve hundreds of acres of additional open space forever.
Because of the pandemic, Frontera is unable to conduct its usual educational and recreational programs at this time. However, officials say that the organization has doubled down on other outreach efforts, such as publishing op-eds and reports on environmental topics, posting educational videos on its Facebook and Instagram pages, designing educational curricula, and checking in with its donors, landowners, and partners so that they will be ready to resume our full schedule as soon as it is safe to do so.
Donations can be made through the Frontera website or by mailing a check made out to The Frontera Land Alliance and sent to the following address:
The Frontera Land Alliance | 3800 N. Mesa St., Suite A2-258 | El Paso, Texas 79902
