The Two Ponds Preservation Foundation is a volunteer organization. The Foundation relies on volunteers to manage and operate the Foundation, maintain and develop the refuge and solicit for grants to improve the Two Ponds National Wildlife Refuge.
The Foundation through the years has received many awards for its activities and these accomplishments would not have happened without its exuberant members.
The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization and all monetary donations are tax deductible.
Some of the fund raising activities of the Foundation have helped build the parking lot and the north entrance. The "Bricks for Bridges" program has enhanced the north entrance as well as raise funds to build the two bridges linking the upper and lower sections of the refuge.
