$1 million gift, largest ever for Mississippi Valley Conservancy



It is the Mississippi Valley Conservancy’s largest donation ever.

An anonymous donor just sent the nonprofit a $1 million endowment fund.

Mississippi Valley executive director Carol Abrahamzon says the donation is just another selfless act within the county that gives away acres of its own land to conserve nature.

The nonprofit hopes to turn the endowment into $3 million with matching contributions.

Abrahamzon added the gift will help ensure they’ll be around for decades to come.
