1900 Founders' Circle

The 1900 Founders’ Circle is a group of individuals who have committed $1,900 over a four-year period to fortify SAF's resources and promote the profession of forestry—contributions go directly into the SAF fund of your choice. Founders’ Circle contributors receive special recognition in The Forestry Source, a Founders’ Circle lapel pin, and, upon completion of your gift, a personalized paver stone at the SAF National Office that commemorates your generous donation.
