Challenge Gift Brings Jackson Falls Preserve One Step Closer to Reality

Challenge Gift Brings Jackson Falls Preserve One Step Closer to Reality

Last week, the Western New York Land Conservancy and Friends of Jackson Falls received notice of a $20,000 grant from the Gallogly Family Foundation to help save Jackson Falls in Aurora, N.Y., and turn it into a nature preserve. This grant is a challenge gift, which means the community must step up to match it, dollar for dollar, in order to for it be used towards creating the Jackson Falls Preserve. 

But there’s a twist: a single donor must match the entire $20,000 challenge gift. That donor will have one of five benches to be placed at the preserve named in their honor. As a special bonus, those five benches will be hand-crafted by Roycroft Renaissance Master Artisan Thomas Pafk, who is also a neighbor to the Jackson Falls property. Only two of those five benches are still available to donors of $20,000, so time is of the essence.

BUFFALO, NY-July 2, 2016

What happens when a Buffalo music powerhouse and a doggedly determined non-profit come together in a musical partnership? Funk for a cause.
