Individual Support & Membership

Together we will enrich the lives of all people in Northeast Ohio. 

A Positive Impact on Communities

West Creek is a regional land trust and watershed group that has been serving Northeast Ohio since 1997.  Our mission is to preserve and protect our natural areas and connect people to them.

Through land and easement acquisition we are perpetually protecting streams, wetlands, forests, farms and other greenspaces – an immediate impact for all of us now, and a generational impact that will be our legacy.

If recent events have taught us anything, it’s the importance of relationships that further connect us with our community. Thriving communities are the foundation of Northeast Ohio, and together we can create new opportunities to connect with nature, preserve greenspace and ensure our communities are thriving.

Our Impact

We are proud to say that for every $1 donated to West Creek, we directly put 96 cents into land and water conservation projects!

Your investment in the organization is not only cost-effective, but it’s locally impactful for generations to come.

Volunteer with West Creek

Making sure that our local natural areas, open spaces, streams, and waterways are well protected is more important than ever. When you volunteer with us, you will get the opportunity to directly contribute to making sure these places will exist for decades to come. Our opportunities range from stream cleanings, community plantings, and more.


Corporate Matching Programs

Matching Gifts can increase the impact of your donation. Many employers offer matching gift programs that can double or even triple contributions made to an eligible nonprofit organization by their employees, retirees or spouse. Some companies will even provide matching funds to support volunteer hours. Please click here for a list of companies that provide matching programs.


As a member, you’ll be directly supporting the preservation and restoration of vital urban greenspace in the West Creek watershed and the Northeast Ohio area. West Creek has been truly successful in large part by membership and other donations. With your support we can preserve and enhance the natural, recreational and historical resources of Northeast Ohio for current and future generations.

Conserve Your Land

The Gift of Conservation is one of the greatest gifts we can present our future generations with. West Creek is proud to protect our region’s land and water resources, and if you would like to explore protecting your land via gift to our organization, please reach out to us.

Planned Giving

Making a gift through planned giving can provide security and peace of mind as you grow older, and can be done regardless of your net worth. Planned giving helps create a legacy of land, stream and waterway restoration right here in our community. Whether you’re making a simple bequest, establishing a charitable gift annuity, or designating a retirement fund beneficiary, we can help you plan for your financial future while supporting your conservation goals.

Tribute and Memorial Giving

If you are looking for a unique way to pay tribute to a loved one, commemorate a milestone, or honor a friend, consider making a donation in tribute.

Your Gift

Your contribution is 100% tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
