Celebrate Jim's 74th Birthday

In case you did not know, March 20th, marks our CEO, Jim Lighthizer's 74th Birthday!  

This is a special birthday for a few reasons. It is likely the last birthday Jim will celebrate as CEO of the Trust before he retires as the day-to-day head of operations. While he has no intention of leaving the Trust, this may be the last time we will celebrate with him.   

Jim has been a transformative leader of this organization. He has built a lasting legacy and led our members to tremendous preservation achievements. When he took the position in 1999, we had only preserved 7,000 acres. Under his leadership, we reached the milestone of over 52,000 acres saved, sent over 25,000 students on field trips, and expanded the scope of history that we preserve. 

Help honor Jim's birthday by making a special gift to this birthday fundraiser. After you make a gift, you can include a special note to him if you'd like.
