Skyline Society: Fundamental to POST’s Success

As a Skyline donor, you join generous individuals who support POST with an annual gift of $1,000 or more. Skyline donors contribute 70 percent of the annual funds to POST and help ensure the protection of thousands of acres of rolling hills, forests, coastal bluffs and fertile agricultural fields.

The Skyline Society takes its inspiration from Skyline Ridge along the Santa Cruz mountain range, which provides a sweeping panorama of our expansive mountains, bay lands and stunning coast. This common interest in and commitment to land conservation among Skyline donors has allowed POST to play a leadership role in preserving the treasured landscapes of our region.

With your annual gift at the Skyline level you:

  • Help POST complete the often complex process of acquiring open space for protection
  • Will meet other Skyline donors and be recognized at POST’s annual Skyline celebration
  • Receive invitations to join special outings and exclusive property tours
  • Are the first to know about newly protected properties
  • Inspire others to support the protection of our local lands

Become a Skyline donor today.



Meet Skyline Donor
Darrell Duffie

Darrell Duffie has been a POST donor since 2002, and he loves exploring our local open spaces by bike. “I ride to the coast almost every Sunday and typically follow routes going west from Skyline Boulevard. These rides would not be nearly as satisfying if I were passing housing tracts or condos instead of beautiful natural scenery,” says Darrell. 

Darrell's wife Denise is also a POST supporter, and they credit POST's substantial track record for their continued support of our organization. “We are impressed with the people who give their time and resources to POST. The organization has continuity, so we know it is not going to disappear.”
