eton Regional Land Trust truly appreciates a generous grant awarded by Teton Springs Foundation towards the purchase of a pickup truck. The truck will replace two older unreliable vehicles.
The vehicle will provide Teton Regional Land Trust with adequate equipment for meeting with potential easement donors, performing required easement visits, performing property maintenance tasks, hauling equipment and material to habitat restoration sites and taking conservation partners, members and donors on outreach tours.
The Teton Springs Foundation was established by the resort founders as a means for the community to benefit directly from the development's success. For each property sold in Teton Springs, the Teton Springs Foundation receives 1% of the value of the home site. Twice per year, the foundation grants funding requests to non-profit organizations serving the residents of Teton Valley. Teton Springs Foundation has funded 35 local nonprofit organizations for over $780,000.
“The Teton Valley nonprofit organizations are lucky to have such a generous program in the county,” said Teton Regional Land Trust Executive Director Chet Work. “We appreciate the Teton Springs Foundation’s support.”
