Undesignated or discretionary contributions enable APPL’s board of directors to apply the funding to programs and projects of the highest priority. This provides needed flexibility to meet program demands and fund projects that might not as easily qualify for grant funding.

Three easy ways to make your contribution:


Conservation and Preservation Charities of America/Combined Federal Campaign

The Conservation and Preservation Charities of America (CPCA) is a federation of America's finest national organizations working to protect and restore the Earth's natural environment and historic treasures through workplace giving campaigns. APPL is proud to be one of the organizations working with CPCA to offer workplace donors the opportunity to support environmental education, wildlife protection, conservation of open space, soil, water, forests, parks and trails. Please visit www.conservenow.org to learn more about contributing to APPL.

CPCA is part of the Combined Federal Campaign, the world's largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign, with more than 300 CFC campaigns throughout the country and internationally raising millions of dollars each year. Pledges made by Federal civilian, postal and military donors during the campaign season (September 1st to December 15th) support eligible non-profit organizations.
