Overview:

Mission

The mission of the Laura Hare Charitable Trust is to enhance Indiana’s natural environment through preservation and stewardship of ecologically significant natural areas and the promotion of environmental education, stewardship and awareness initiatives.

Purpose

The purpose of the Laura Hare Charitable Trust is to preserve the natural environment by acquiring and maintaining ecologically significant undeveloped land, such as swamps, marshes, forests, wilderness tracts, and other natural areas, and maintaining the land for the purpose of preserving it in its natural state. The Trust is especially interested in lands on which public access is allowed, but access may be limited so that the delicate balance of the ecosystem remains undisturbed. The Trust will allow educational and scientific research or study as long as such use will not disrupt the particular ecosystem. To achieve the specific purpose of the Trust, the Trust may make gifts and grants to those charitable organizations which have a primary purpose of preserving the natural environment through land acquisition and protection. In order to be constantly aware of the availability of significant undeveloped areas and environmental education opportunities, the Charitable Trust will work closely with federal, state, and local government agencies and private organizations concerned with environmental conservation. Education and environmental stewardship are areas of secondary interest to the Trust. As such, environmental education, stewardship and awareness programs will be supported.

The Trust awards funds in four focus areas:

  • Land Acquisition
  • Environmental Education/Access
  • Environmental Restoration
  • Environmental Stewardship
