Mission Statement

Headwaters Charitable Trust Board of Directors believe that our region is sustainable when: - Communities thrive economically - Communities offer green jobs and access to fresh, nutritious foods that allow people to care and provide for themselves and their families - Ecological assets and communities are recognized as interdependent - Natural and cultural heritage is cherished

Description

The Headwaters Charitable Trust enhances the livability of rural communities by generating employment opportunities and funding through the restoration of land and water. The Trust is committed to building financial and philanthropic investments that will support healthy and vital communities in the PA Wilds region of Northcentral Pennsylvania. These restoration investments have particularly localized benefits including local labor employment, materials purchase and cost savings.

In order to create these investments, the Charitable Trust solicits funds, administers grants, promotes value added revenue strategies and acquires land rights on behalf of community sponsors. Since its inception, the Trust has successfully raised more than $12 M for 115 projects that have improved 130 miles of fishable streams, developed 74 miles of recreational trails, sponsored sustainable management of 1,200 acres of forests, as well as, sponsoring numerous youth internships and vista volunteer opportunities.

Headwaters Charitable Trust is a non-membership organization guided by an independent board of 8- 16 directors comprised of business owners, bankers, government, technical and legal experts who by nature embrace a conservation ethic.
