The Fund defines impact as positive, growing change on the land and in the water. It is what has driven us for the last 30 years.

We are proud of our investments in the people who have turned their ideas into impact for the benefit of the 40 million of us who rely on the lakes. As we celebrate the accomplishments of our teams, we also recognize the real change-makers—the countless folks who are creating lasting improvements every day by putting our teams’ innovations to work.

Looking back is inspiring and we are happy to share what we have accomplished together. We hope you are inspired, too. Impact will continue to drive the Fund for the next 30 years.
