Donate now to ensure our community will continue to have access to the Cle Elum Ridge for generations to come. 


The Cle Elum Ridge serves our communities in so many ways. It provides a place for recreation, scenic views, a buffer for wildfires, a source of clean water, a home for our abundant wildlife, and a driver for our local economy. We hope to preserve these lands as a community forest, but we need your help.


You can ensure that our community continues to enjoy the benefits of these lands for generations to come. Create a lasting legacy in Kittitas County by making a charitable tax donation to the Cle Elum Ridge Community Forest today!

Since the Checkboard Partnership is a group and not a formal entity, our partner Kittitas Conservation Trust opened an account on behalf of the community forest effort. All funds donated will be put toward the purchase and management of the community forest lands. 

If you prefer to donate by check, you can mail it to PO Box 428, Roslyn, WA 98941. Please make the check out to Kittitas Conservation Trust and write "community forest" on the memo line so that we know how to apply your donation.

Kittitas Conservation Trust (KCT) is a local non-profit land trust whose mission is to protect and enhance fish and wildlife habitat, open space, and recreational assets in the upper Yakima River basin. KCT is a registered 501.c.3. For tax purposes, their EIN is 54-6569291.
