Schultz & Williams StaffSolutions™ is supporting the development program at Willistown Conservation Trust over the next six months. Senior Consultant Carol Forte, Consultant Theresa Leinker and Project Manager Kelly Forman round out a top-notch consulting team providing Willistown with the temporary staff they need to ensure continued success of the Trust’s development program.
Our team will work with the Trust’s Board and staff to meet its annual fund goal by year’s end and to complete its capital campaign to finish construction of a new conservation center and refurbish an existing farm house located on some of the Trust’s preserved farmland. Schultz & Williams will help the Trust manage its donor data base, provide tracking and review of grant applications, support its fundraising events and, through general consultation, assist the Trust with defining and recruiting new development leadership.
Willistown Conservation Trust has been working to fulfill its mission, “to preserve the open land, rural character, historic and ecologically significant resources of the Willistown area and nearby communities with particular emphasis on the Crum, Ridley and Darby Creek watersheds,” for more than 40 years. Located about 20 miles west of Philadelphia, PA, the Trust program focal area encompasses 28,000 acres in Chester County and portions of Delaware County. Today, 7,200 acres are preserved; most of the land has been protected through the donation of conservation easements by more than 120 local landowners.
The Trust’s programs and services cover five major categories: (1) Land Protection; (2) Bird Conservation; (3) Habitat Restoration; (4) Community Farm; and (5) Education and Community Outreach.
