Becoming a Perennial Partner

Per·en·ni·al / pəˈrenēəl: Lasting for an infinitely long time; enduring or continually recurring.

As Coloradans, we believe in the value of our state’s wild and working lands. By becoming a Perennial Partner, your monthly donation demonstrates your commitment to the idea that land is worth protecting.

The conservation work of Colorado Open Lands is made possible with support from this network of sustaining members and community partners. When you join our network of givers, you help us plan for the future with predictable and steady funding.

Perennial Partners help keep Colorado, Colorado! Every time you enjoy the beauty of our state as a Perennial Partner, you know that your continued support helps keep it beautiful, forever.

The Perennial Partners Monthly Giving Program is proudly sponsored by Odell Brewing Company. Odell is committed to contributing to charitable programs that serve communities and the environment. We are grateful for their generous partnership!

Why Become A Perennial Partner?

“I love living in Colorado because of the natural beauty of the landscape, the amazing wildlife, and the wonderful recreational opportunities. I support Colorado Open Lands because they are working to preserve the land that makes this state so special. I decided to become a monthly donor because donating a small amount each month eventually adds up to a bigger donation. Like a savings program, if you ‘set it and forget it’ you can make an impact that matters without a big impact on your finances!”
– Nanette Curtis

“As the daughter of an environmentalist, I was raised to deeply value the environment. Since relocating to Denver, Colorado Open Lands has been a wonderful way to maintain my connection to my environmentalist roots. I give monthly because it is financially sustainable for me and I’ve maintained my monthly donations seamlessly, which makes it easy to continue giving.”
– Laura Bricklin

Frequently Asked Questions

Why donate to Colorado Open Lands?
We love Colorado. We love its lands and we love its people. So how do we ensure that our children, and our children’s children have the chance to experience this place we love as more and more people move to Colorado?

More than half of all land in Colorado is private. This land grows our food, supports healthy habitat for wildlife, and inspires our adventures. We believe this land is vitally important for the future of our state. Colorado Open Lands works with landowners throughout the state to help them achieve their conservation goals. These landowners have chosen to conserve their land forever – for the benefit of all Coloradans.

By supporting Colorado Open Lands, you are supporting local farms and ranches, protecting those incredible Colorado views, and ensuring wildlife has healthy habitat to thrive. Your monthly gift helps protect and enhance our state’s most valued wild and working land forever.
