Donate to our Annual Campaign


The holiday season is well known as a time of giving and receiving. As 2021 comes to a close, we are thankful for receiving tremendous support, enthusiastic endorsemnt, and generous giving from our members, donors, and program participants. A very successful 13th Annual Fall Fling Fundraiser was held on Novemeber 14th, Give to the Max day was celebrated throughout Minnesota with Ney receiving geneorus donations, and our New Fund a Need appeal provided us with over $1,000 towards multiple programming and equipment needs, inlcuding the purchase of a full set of mammal track replicas. These donations have us well on our way to achieving our End-of-the-Year goal of raising $15,000. Thank you!

All contributions to Ney sustain the Ney Nature Center’s mission as we respond to our program growth and equipment needs for the upcoming year. This year we are excited to have 4 donors who in total have dedicated $3,000 in matching funds to finish out our End-of-the-Year campaign.

Your donation, of any amount will help us secure these matching dollars! We can only achieve our goal of raising $15,000 with generous donations from members of our community. Can we count on your support of the Ney Nature Center, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, with a donation to secure the $3,000.00?

Each year, the Ney Nature Center provides a wide variety of experiences for people of all ages to interact with nature through our field trip program, general public programming, trail maintenance, and park development. Community Education Directors, youth groups (including YMCA, 4-H, Boy Scouts & Girl Scouts), and schools have increasingly requested our programs. Since July 1, 2021 we have facilitated over 90 group experiences for 2,580 program participants, both in the park and through outreach. We have averaged 33 cars per day entering the park this year to date. Industry standard estimates 3 people per car, we are on track to welcome an estimated 36,135 visitors to our park in 2021.
