The NFA expresses its sincere condolences to the families affected and grieves along with the rest of
our community.  The NFA has been greatly honored to host the memorial located at our Glen
property in Sandy Hook Center.  The NFA has been approached by several donors wishing to
support planting of trees in memory of the victims.  The NFA has established a Fund to accept these
donations and will restrict the use of these funds to prepare, plant and maintain a living memorial to
honor these victims.

For almost 90 years the Newtown Forest Association
(a public charity under IRS regulations 501c(3)
has helped the community and has maintained a
memorial trail at one of its properties since 1968. All
donations are tax-deductible and those designated for the Sandy Hook School Memorial Tree Fund
will be restricted to preparing, planting and maintaining a living memorial to honor these victims.

To DONATE on-line with a Credit Card or PAYPAL - Please follow the Link and instructions therein.  
They do charge a 5% fee for the service, however, it is much less costly to us than maintaining our
own Credit Card account.  They will process the donation and send us your information to enable us
to acknowledge your gift.  This link provides for you to include a "Designation" which you can denote -
Sandy Hook School Memorial Tree Fund.  

Thanks for entrusting the NFA with this responsibility.

Sandy Hook School Memorial Tree Fund
Newtown Forest Association
Connecticut's Oldest Private Land Trust
The horrific events that
descended upon Sandy
Hook School on
December 14, 2012
have seen an
outpouring of emotion
and support by not only
our community, but from
across the United
States.  Donors have
contacted  the NFA
specifically because they
have a desire contribute
funds to see that trees
are planted in the victims
memory.  One was
quoted as having said
that "a tree grows from a
small seed to a towering
and strong symbol of
life."  This Fund was
established to honor the
wishes of donors who
desire to memorialize the
victims with trees as a
living memorial.  The
NFA takes on this
responsibility with a
heavy heart and knows
that no tree we plant, or
memorial built, will ever
replace those lost souls
but we hope they serves
to celebrate all of the
wonderful memories
those people brought to
those who knew them.
