■ Honorary gift: Using our printed membership donation form, you can mark it to honor a loved one or friend or to celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary, employee recognition, new birth, or graduation. For each gift received we will plant a healthy hemlock sapling in one of Georgia's forests. Planting these beautiful long-lived trees is a meaningful way to carry forward the names of special people and events in a way that grows grander with the years and benefits all of us in this and future generations.
■ Scholarship gift: Another way you can invest in the future and ensure the continuity of SGH's mission is to mark your membership donation form as a contribution to the Frank Gheesling Save Georgia's Hemlocks Scholarship Fund. Annual scholarships have been established at the University of Georgia's Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources and North Georgia Technical College to be awarded to worthy students who are pursuing areas of study and careers focused on benefiting the hemlocks.
gift: SGH has a number of ways we incorporate hemlock saplings into
our educational and service programs -- offering them for adoption, donating
them to schools and nonprofits, trout stream restoration, and planting in parks
and other public spaces, to name a few. So if you have small (up to 3 feet
tall) saplings you'd be willing to donate, please call the Hemlock Help
Line to let us know, and we'll come rescue, pot, treat, and care for them in one
of our nurseries to get them ready for charitable use. PLUS you'll
receive a tax receipt / thank-you letter recognizing the value of your donation.
Reimbursement: If you'd like to use PayPal to reimburse SGH for parts used for injector repair or a similar purpose, click the Pay Now button below. Alternatively, you can mail a check to Save Georgia's Hemlocks, 37 Woody Bend, Dahlonega, GA 30533.
■ Donor information will be protected with great care and will not be shared, internally or externally, in any illegal or inappropriate way.
■ A donor may give SGH permission to publish their name and/or donation amount if they wish to be publicly recognized for their gift. Otherwise all donations are kept strictly confidential.
