An anonymous donation of $4 million to Community Foundation of the Ozarks Inc. created environmental sustainability endowments for four nonprofits.

The beneficiaries are James River Basin Partnership, Ozark Greenways, TrailSpring and Watershed Committee of the Ozarks, according to a news release. Nonprofit officials yesterday made the announcement on Earth Day yesterday at the Watershed Center at Valley Water Mill Park.

“On this day when people across the country are taking part in efforts to respect and protect our natural environment, we are celebrating a gift that will advance the long-term sustainability of these four outstanding organizations through an additional source of funding,” CFO President Brian Fogle said in the release.

The endowment funds will provide annual income for the four organizations, according to the release.
