Upstate Forever is a land conservation and advocacy organization that protects critical lands, waters, and the unique character of the Upstate of South Carolina.
The Upstate’s natural resources are preserved for future generations, and its unique rural character endures.
We focus our work on the ten Upstate counties of Abbeville, Anderson, Cherokee, Greenville, Greenwood, Laurens, Oconee, Pickens, Spartanburg and Union.
We believe the Upstate is one the most beautiful places on earth and want to keep it that way forever!
We are a membership-based nonprofit organization whose work is made possible by generous donations from people like you, in addition to grants from public and private funding sources. We are strategic and careful with every dollar of our donors’ money. Please consider supporting Upstate Forever today! To view our archive of financial reports, click here.
