The mission of the New Hampshire Timberland Owners Association is to promote private and public working forests, responsible forest management, and a strong forest products industry.

Donate to the NHTOA Annual Fund

Donate to the GSWI

The NHTOA Annual Fund is the vital support for our association’s educational, training, and communications programs, as well as the NHTOA’s advocacy in the State House, in the offices of key state and federal agencies, and in town halls around the state on behalf of timberland owners and the forest products industry. Gifts and grants to the Annual Fund represent half of the NHTOA’s operating budget; they are “the fuel that keeps the NHTOA machine operating.”

The Granite State Woodland Institute (GSWI) is an IRS recognized 501(c)3 tax-exempt charitable organization. 

In 2001, a group of New Hampshire Timberland Owners Association (NHTOA) members organized the Granite State Woodland Institute as a means to support the NHTOA’s tax-exempt education, research, and outreach work. As a 501(c)3 corporation GSWI can accept gifts from other tax-exempt organizations (i.e. foundations, trusts, etc.) and all gifts to GSWI are 100 percent tax-deductible. 

As the population of New Hampshire becomes more urbanized and less connected with the sources of their food, fiber, lumber, and power, the need for more education on the value of working forests grows. Gifts to GSWI support the NHTOA’s effort to meet this growing need.
