Position:2016 FISCAL YEAR IN REVIEW - Conservation Law Foundation's financial report

Over the past fiscal year, which closed on July 31, 2016, CLF once again demonstrated fiscal responsibility by balancing our finances and ending the year with an operating surplus.

We achieved these results even as we continue to invest in the core administrative areas of Development and Communications--investments that are showing a positive return. Not only are current donors giving more, we have also seen an influx of new supporters to the organization.

At the same time, we have amplified our public profile with a stronger presence in traditional and social media while more effectively engaging our supporters through email, local events, and other outreach.

Our endowment fund is also strong, as we benefited from the receipt of a number of bequests. This is an important source of support that I hope all of us will consider.

As I begin my first fiscal year as Treasurer, I am honored to follow in the footsteps of Gene Clapp, who served as CLF's treasurer for nearly 20 years. Gene's dedicated leadership has helped us achieve our current financial strength and stability and we are grateful for his service and commitment.

I also want to acknowledge all of you, the generous members and volunteers who make it possible for CLF to accomplish so much. You are the key to our success and your support has never been more important than it is right now. We have new challenges ahead, yes, but also new opportunities, and we are thankful to have you by our side as we continue to pursue groundbreaking initiatives that benefit all New Englanders.
