Giving on SCA Giving Day changes lands and lives–and with challenge funds, your gift goes even further! Challenge funds are allocated to SCA programs based on the results of SCA Giving Day competitions. Scroll down to learn more about how your gift on September 22 will help unlock more money for programs that are important to you.

Giving Challenges

Don’t miss the chance to multiply your impact, thanks to gift matching opportunities below. If all three giving challenges are met, we’ll unlock a total of $25,000!

Giving Challenge #1:

63 and Me

In honor of our 63rd year, the members of the SCA Alumni Council will provide a leadership gift towards an additional $6,300 match if we secure 63 NEW first-time gifts, with at least 20 from alumni, by the end of the day. Your gift will support conservation projects and programs in your neighborhood and beyond.

Giving Challenge #2:

Giving Challenge #3:

SCA is Everywhere

When all 50 states have at least one unique donor, we’ll unlock another $10,000 in challenge funds for SCA’s conservation programs! In 2019 alone, SCA crews helped at more than 450 parks, public lands, and green spaces in every state across the country.
