Tribute & Memorial Gifts: Celebrate the People and Events of Your Life

Click here to download a Tribute Form (385 kb).The connection between people and the places they love is strong and enduring. The open fields, cedar forests and craggy shorelines of Door County are the backdrop to the shared experiences that shape our lives.  These places are near and dear to our hearts and they say something about who we are – just like our families and friends and the special events of our lives do.

When you make a gift to the Door County Land Trust honoring a friend, family member, special event, or life of a loved one, your gift lasts as long as the land does – forever!

To make a gift to the Door County Land Trust in honor or memory of someone, please open a Tribute Form (385 kb)* that you can print and mail to us.

Honorees will receive the following recognition:

  • a special note informing them that a gift has been made in their name (but not the amount of the gift unless we receive instructions to share this information)-  Their family will be notified in the case of Memorial Gifts
  • a copy of the Door County Land Trust journal, Landings

  • the satisfaction of being part of a solution to protect Door County's most important resource... the land itself!

If you’d like, please feel free to send us a photo and a few words about the person(s) or event you’re commemorating and we will share with our members as many stories as room allows!

In Honor of Martin and Hilary Ford

Martin and Hilary FordOn August 23, 2011, my father, Martin, celebrates being 80 years young and my mother, Hilary, and he celebrate 55 years of marriage.Wow…what milestones! As I write this, many thoughts and memories run through my mind…who could ever begin to express them all?

What is easy to say is that I and all of my family are blessed and grateful to have them as our parents and grandparents. This donation to the Door County Land Trust supports a cause they strongly believe in and respectfully represents a fraction of all the many ways they have given to others throughout their years.

In 2008, Martin and Hilary moved to Ellison Bay from Walworth County, Wisconsin, where, years earlier, they enrolled eighty acres of erodible farmland in a conservation reserve program to restore native prairie landscapes. Preserving the natural environment has been important to them throughout their lives and it is why they greatly admire the work of the Door County Land Trust.

The Door County Land Trust received this note from Martin and Hilary’s son, Richard, along with donations from the Ford Family. The Land Trust thanks Richard, Julie, Jasmine, Vivian, Chris, Ali, Will, Nick and Deb Ford for their donations!
