Donate Land, Animals, or Other Assets
In certain circumstances, Savory Institute has welcomed gifts of land, animals, and other assets. Since accepting these types of gifts can carry substantial amounts of paperwork and legal consultation, these opportunities are taken on a case-by-case basis and carefully vetted in accordance with our Holistic Context.
Example: Donating Land
The Savory Institute’s West Bijou Ranch in Colorado was a gift from The Plains Conservation Center, a local organization that wanted to ensure the long-term stewardship of their 7,500-acre site. The West Bijou ranch now serves as one of two Global Campuses of the Savory Institute, with the other being the Dimbangombe Ranch in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.
Example: Donating Animals
A dairy farm contacted Savory Institute wanting to donate calves on a regular basis. Given that Savory Institute had no way to receive these calves directly, Savory then connected the dairy with their closest Savory Hub to evaluate the opportunity. After much discussion, the Savory Hub was able to integrate calf donations into their programs, providing not just Holistic Management training and EOV land verification services, but now also providing animals for those without the means to do so on their own. This calf donation story is captured in a short film on Savory’s youtube channel.
