VolunteerHoward Christensen Nature Center is a 501(c)3 not for profit organization. Our sole purpose is the successful operation of the center for environmental education, community engagement and of course to provide a place of solitude for all to enjoy. Donations keep our doors open, our lights on and our mission strong. We have opportunities to donate to the general operations of HCNC but also accept donations towards specific projects and purposes. By donating to the HCNC, you have done your part to secure a future for the center, education for thousands of school children and a community resource unmatched in the industry.

As a nonprofit we rely heavily on donations, programming andfield trips to keep our doors open and lights on for the public! HCNC is currently underway with the Summer 2015 Pledge Drive to help fund our low cost community events to remain accessible to all and continue reaching out! Call us, visit our website to donate online or visit our pledge page at www.gofundme.com/HowardChristensen to be part of the difference HCNC is making in your community! Feel free to visit us ANYTIME!

As a not for profit, you may write off your entire contribution to HCNC, and as we proudly display your name on our projects, programs and sponsor recognition materials, the rest of the community will see that your organization supports a wonderful facility and programming! Remember also, monetary contributions that cover the cost of a specified camp or program will include the renaming of that program to reflect your sponsorship (i.e. John Doe Day Camp at HCNC).

Your contribution will help make a difference for thousands!
