The transaction cycle in land conservation can take more than five years to complete, from initial contact with a seller to acquisition and finally, transfer to a public agency or nonprofit for permanent protection. Consequently, the League may hold land (reflected as real estate held) for several years before transferring it to a public agency or nonprofit land trust and realizing any program expense. Considered over a five-year period, the League's expenses for programmatic services represented 72 percent of total expenses.

Review our annual audited financial statements and IRS 990 forms below. Save the Redwoods League is exempt from federal income taxation under Section 501(C)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Our revenue comes from individuals, foundations, corporations, government agencies and investments. With these generous donations, since 1918, the League has protected and restored redwood forests and connected people with their peace and beauty so these wonders of the natural world flourish.

Unfortunately, some ancient redwoods remain unprotected, and forests that are protected face threats from a changing environment, disease and devastating government budget cuts. Your donations help us save these special places, allowing us to purchase redwood land, restore logged forests, study how to best protect them and teach children and adults about these magical expressions of life.

Southeast of Three Rivers in the Sierra Nevada is a kingdom of giant sequoias reachable on foot, mountain bike and horseback. Ancient giants here measure as much as 16 feet across, likely wider than your dining room. Save the Redwoods League is working with Sequoia Riverlands Trust and the Bureau of Land Management to buy Craig Ranch and provide easy access to the majestic ancient trees.
