Headwaters Circle

When donors make annual contributions of at least $1,000 they become members of SCC’s Headwaters Giving Circle. Annual contributions can be made either as a one-time gift or through monthly recurring donations of at least $84.

Headwaters members receive special access to ongoing developments in the watershed that are being carried out by SCC or by one of our corporate partners. They receive invitations to exclusive events and are able to connect with the Conservancy’s extensive network of community stakeholders.

This access to on-the-ground developments along Shoal Creek gives our Headwaters Circle members the opportunity to get more involved and be more than just donors, but rather ambassadors for all of our important work.
