WHY? Federated Conservations of Westchester County (FCWC) is grateful for the fifty years of support it has received from individuals, foundations, and businesses. Our operating budget is supported each year by fundraising activities, including our annual appeal to members. It is because of support of people like you, that we have been able to further our education, advocacy and programming efforts on environmental issues.
FCWC is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and has been working hard to be the premier advocate for Westchester County residents.
Our organization has fulfilled this role by becoming an active voice in local environmental issues. In September, FCWC in partnership with the Center for Environmental Legal Studies of Pace University Law School, presented an all-day conference addressing the local effects Climate Change and Sea Level Rise will have on the Westchester County community. The conference brought together experts in the field for a paneled discussion to a sold-out audience of municipal officials and the public.
Additionally, this past year FCWC has partnered with Long Island Sound Science Festival as an effort to encourage citizen science to improve water quality in Long Island Sound; as well as continued to co-sponsor the "Conversation Cafés" on food composting and citizen science.
While taking on large issues, such as climate change, FCWC still has continued educating and advocating for our local priorities, such as eating locally and the need to ban single use plastic bags.
We will be celebrating the environmental victories we have achieved for Westchester thus far, thanks to the support of generous individuals like you. FCWC needs your support to continue goals of education, advocacy and programming efforts - and to create a more sustainable Westchester County.
During these past 50+ years FCWC's work has been critical in bringing together diverse interests and moving the County's environmental agenda forward. With your support, we can continue to do so this year, next year, and for years to come.
