Gingrich Foundation Awards Grant to the Trust for Public Land

WASHINGTON, Nov. 4 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The Gingrich Foundation has awarded a grant to the Trust for Public Land, a national nonprofit land conservation organization.

The Trust for Public Land helps land owners, communities, state agencies, and national agencies conserve land for people to enjoy as parks, playgrounds and protected natural areas.

"The Trust for Public Land uses a common sense approach to land stewardship, as it preserves our natural, cultural, and historic heritage," said Callista Gingrich, president of the Gingrich Foundation, "Newt and I are delighted to be a part of their good work."

"We're very happy to have this generous contribution," said James Langford, Georgia state director for the Trust for Public Land. "This gift will help us significantly as we move forward to preserve new areas of green space across the country -- spaces that improve the quality of life for all Americans, whether they live in urban or rural environments."

The Trust for Public Land is dedicated to providing a full range of services to those individuals and organizations involved in conservation projects. The Trust has completed more than 2,700 land conservation projects in 46 states, protecting nearly two million acres of land.


The Gingrich Foundation is a domestic non-profit corporation founded by Callista and Newt Gingrich to support charitable purposes. Callista Gingrich is the chief clerk of the House Committee on Agriculture in Washington, D.C. Newt Gingrich is chairman of the Gingrich Group and founder of the Center for Health Transformation in Washington, D.C. and Atlanta.
