Stepping Up to the Plate: Bostwick Dollar-For-Dollar Matching Gift Challenge

North Shore Land Alliance Humes Preserve Meadow

Tommy Bostwick of Bostwick Capital adopted a conservation ethic early on. He fondly remembers time spent outside helping his Dad care for the nearby Jane B. Francke Sanctuary in Old Brookville. When he saw the stewardship responsibility the Land Alliance was taking on at Humes, he stepped up to help.

His firm launched a dollar-for-dollar matching gift challenge up to $15,000 to develop a stewardship fund for the Preserve. Within weeks, his friends responded and $33,500 was raised to help the Land Alliance maintain this community treasure for years to come. Tommy requested that the fund be named after his good friend Carl C. Wermee of CW Athletes who was instrumental in the success of this wonderful campaign. Carl brings joy and education about a healthy lifestyle to many, as evidenced by this long list of contributors.

If you would like to make a donation to help maintain the Preserve, please click the link: or contact the Land Alliance at 516-922-1028.

Thank you to the Bostwick challenge matching gift donors.
