Help us reach our goal of a wilderness stewardship group for every Wilderness area.

The National Wilderness Stewardship Alliance Fund (NWSA Fund) is a donor-advised endowment established in partnership with the Oregon Community Foundation through a generous donation from The David Berolzheimer Foundation to honor life-long friend and wilderness champion, Elaine Dermody, who is a Founding Member of the National Wilderness Stewardship Alliance. Proceeds from this endowment and donations to the NWSA Fund will be used to support the formation of new wilderness stewardship programs through NWSA's Grow Wild Grant Program in our effort to establish a wilderness stewardship group for every Wilderness area in the National Wilderness Preservation System.

2020 - Start up funding for Wild Alabama

Wild Alabama is proud to partner with National Wilderness Stewardship Alliance! As we are a newly rebirthed organization with all the startup costs associated with this, we are so appreciative of the NWSA Startup grant to help us cover costs such as our website, IRS filing fees, and marketing costs to broaden our presence in the state. We look forward to a long relationship helping to continue to protect and educate about Alabama's three wilderness areas, Sipsey, Cheaha, and Dugger Mt.   -  Maggie Johnston Executive Director, Wild Alabama
