The Trust for Public Land has received a $500,000 gift from the Dominion Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Dominion Virginia Power. The donation is the first substantial gift from the private sector towards the acquisition of Pleasure House Point.

From Dominion Foundation’s Press Release:

“Dominion Virginia Power has joined us in recognizing that conserving Pleasure House Point is a community priority, in addition to an ecological priority, and we are grateful,” said Lynda Frost, TPL senior project manager. “A dedicated group of community leaders have been working hard to raise private funds and the large amount of Dominion’s gift is a tremendous vote of confidence in their efforts as well as the value and benefits of the project. Dominion is leading by example to encourage other corporate donors to step forward.

Pleasure House Point. Critical habitat for wildlife, you, & future generations.

Emphasis ours.

Thank you Dominion Foundation!
