Thank You for your support on North Texas Giving Day!

THANK YOU! to everyone that donated to Connemara during  North Texas Giving Day.  It was our most successful North Texas Giving Day fundraiser ever!

Your support also helped us qualify for bonus funds from the Communities Foundation of Texas. More importantly, however, your contribution will play an important role in helping us expand our work with landowners, local governments and forward-thinking developers to preserve and protect critical acres of open space and provide conservation education programs throughout North Texas.
