2016 Annual Report

Confluence

Uniting for Golden State water solutions

Welcome

Water unites life on Earth. Humans, wildlife, plants – we all need it, from a clean source and in sufficient supply.

This biological requirement connects California’s myriad environmental problems. As daunting challenges face our most precious resource, Sustainable Conservation gathers strength and inspiration from our commonalities to steer water solutions for our Golden State.

With your support, we work through confluence – recognizing that conservation momentum quickens when multiple currents of change flow together as one. By listening closely to one another and joining forces to maximize our impact, we’re better able to meet the water needs of our Golden State’s environment, economy, and communities.

Thank you for everything you made possible in 2016. All of us at Sustainable Conservation are deeply grateful for your partnership.

At the end of 2012, Sustainable Conservation launched the Making Big Ideas Work (MBIW) campaign in order to increase revenue and deepen programmatic impacts. Beginning in 2013, Sustainable Conservation has been supporting new initiatives using assets accumulated during the MBIW campaign. The spend down of campaign funds was the main driver of the decrease in net assets of $816,293 in 2016. The spend down will continue through 2017 as Sustainable Conservation spends MBIW campaign funds as planned.

Cynthia Hunter Lang

For nearly 20 years, through my close involvement as a donor, Board member, and now Advisory Board member, I have seen first-hand how Sustainable Conservation continually sets the bar high in areas of leadership, collaboration, and – most important – impact. They drive environmental and economic wins for California by bringing the right people to the table and building sincere relationships among unlikely partners. As a result, their conservation solutions stick.

Richard Waycott

Sustainable Conservation has been an integral partner in exploring the potential for groundwater recharge efforts in almond orchards. Since we began working together in 2015, Sustainable Conservation has engaged multiple almond farmers across the Central Valley who volunteered their orchards for this important research. We look forward to continuing this work to address the water supply concerns of today while preparing California for future droughts and the implementation of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act.
