In 2013, Capitol Land Trust was awarded accreditation by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission for meeting the national quality standards established by the land conservation community. The Standards cover everything from meeting our mission to stewarding our lands, to Board governance, legal compliance, and managing our finances and assets.
Capitol Land Trust’s finances are overseen by the Finance Committee and Board of Directors. A financial audit is performed each year by a third party to ensure financial controls are in place and that CLT’s financial procedures are in compliance with all applicable laws.
To fulfill the responsibility of stewarding conserved lands in perpetuity, CLT maintains a Stewardship Fund. The purpose of this fund is to cover the expense of annually monitoring our conserved properties, preventing and addressing easement and property violations, and restoring degraded habitat.
