2016 ‘Land Trust Day’ at Mast General Store raises record funds for Upstate Forever

August 10, 2016

Greenville’s Mast General Store has donated $7,815 to support Upstate Forever’s land protection efforts – more than in any previous year. Since 2003, the store has partnered with the Greenville-based conservation group for the regional chain’s annual Land Trust Day, held each year on the first Saturday in June, generously donating a portion of that day’s sales. Upstate Forever permanently protects over 20,000 acres of critical lands across the Upstate through voluntary conservation agreements with landowners.


Upstate Forever is a nonprofit, membership-based organization promoting sensible growth and the protection of special places in the Upstate region of South Carolina. Our three program areas are Land Trust, Sustainable Communities, and Clean Air and Water. Founded in 1998, Upstate Forever now has nearly 2,000 members, two offices, and a staff of 19.
