GMCT has five types of funds to which you can donate:

The E.B. Wolf Fund is the primary source of income used for buying properties in the Great Meadows including appraisals, environmental inspections, site surveys, and closing costs.

The General Fund is for expenses such as the cost of insuring our holdings, expenses relating to general administration for things like printing services, postage, recording and transcribing services, managing our membership, and our annual dinner.

The Stewardship Fund is used for maintaining the GMCT properties and costs associated with things like invasive species control, infrastructure, brush mowing, and related tasks.

The Betty Schmitt Memorial Scholarship Fund has been providing annual scholarships to graduating high school seniors from Glastonbury, Rocky Hill, and Wethersfield who are planning to study Environmental Science and related fields in college.

Finally, Memorial Funds are established when needed to honor GMCT members who have left us.
