Donate to Support our Mission

Help us Connect People with Nature

The Chattahoochee Nature Center is fortunate to have many community partners that help support the work of our environmental education and community programs. These dollars are critical to our success but are designated specifically for the delivery of programs. As a result, every year CNC reaches out to our friends to ask for support through our annual appeal. The dollars that are donated to CNC through the annual appeal represent the most important funds we receive all year – operating dollars!

CNC is a private, non-profit 501(c)3 organization supported by our members and the community at large. Your tax-deductible donation directly supports our operating needs.

Be assured your donation is managed well with the GuideStar and Charity Navigator designation.
