The Resource Conservation District of Monterey County is entirely funded by grants and contracts.  Unlike other RCDs in California, we do not have a tax base, nor do we currently receive any funding from the County of Monterey.  Your donations in the form of cash or time contributions can help the ongoing operations and projects of the RCD.

The District encompasses about 2 million acres, almost 95% of the Monterey County. It includes 401,762 residents and 151,502 registered voters. The RCD does not receive any tax revenues from the County. All government funding has been awarded through competitive grants. The conservation and restoration work performed by the RCD is critical to maintaining an environmentally sustainable and economically viable agricultural sector and maintaining the high quality of life throughout the County.


With your help we can continue to improve environmental health and quality of life for Monterey County

SAY “THANK YOU”

If you are pleased with the work the RCD does, write us a letter or email saying so. If you are willing, grant us permission to share that letter when we apply for funds in the future, and it will increase our ability and our capacity to fulfill our mission.

MAKE A DONATION

Your donations in the form of cash or time contributions can help the ongoing operations and project of the RCD. The RCD is authorized by California Public Resource Code Section 9403 to receive gifts and contributions just like any other research, educational or public charity. As a political subdivision of the State, a Special District like the RCD is exempt from taxation, thereby allowing contributors to deduct their donations.

The RCD may receive tax deductible donations under Internal Revenue Service Code Section 170 (b) and 170 (c) (1). This section says that contributions to a governmental entity are deductible up to 50% of the taxpayer's adjusted gross income. The RCD may accept all forms of contributions including, but not limited to, gifts, property, cash, stocks and securities. California law also allows the RCD to acquire and own land. Contact your accountant or financial consultant for further information on giving to the RCD.

If you, your company or organization is interested in making a contribution to the RCD, please contact us.

ONLINE DONATIONS

We are currently considering the possibility of accepting online credit card donations to the RCD.  In the meantime, please contact the RCD office for more information on how to donate.

VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME

The RCD is always looking for enthusiastic individuals interested in donating their time and skills to assist with our operations.  We always need assistance both in the office and on field projects.  Common activities include volunteer planting, weeding, creek cleanups, database management, maintaining our resource library, and general office administrative assistance.  No experience is necessary, just a good attitude and willingness to learn.  If you are interested in volunteering with the RCD, contact our office.
