Be a vital part of the Green Foothills community with your pledge to sponsor our premier celebration and annual fundraiser, Nature’s Inspiration, on Sunday, September 24, 2023. Your sponsorship supports the protection of open space, natural resources, and farmland in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties for the benefit of all.
We need your support. Nature’s Inspiration underwrites a significant portion of Green Foothills’ annual operating budget and our organization depends on funds raised from this event. To sponsor this year’s Nature’s Inspiration, please fill out this pledge form. Tickets will be available for purchase in July.
Sponsors of this year’s Nature’s Inspiration are invited to attend a special Healing in Nature Experience, a restorative gathering led by local healers, in which we walk through protected parks and open spaces with guidance from expert docents who tell us about the local ecology. On the day of Nature’s Inspiration, from 9:30-10:30 a.m. we will be offering one of these gatherings especially for sponsors, giving you a chance to experience healing in nature at Sanborn County Park. Space is limited so make a pledge today to reserve your spot!
We are grateful for the generous support of our sponsors and donors.
Make your pledge today!
We will collect your pledge payment as the event gets closer.

Why I Became a Sponsor
“Many of the most important decisions affecting our natural environment involve land use decisions made by our local governments. For almost 60 years, Green Foothills and its allies have worked diligently and effectively to assure that local government decisions in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties have protected open space and prevented sprawl.”
