Dear Friend:

Greetings! As this year draws to a close, I am filled with gratitude for the generosity and vision of our many supporters. We are now completing our Eighteenth Year of the Property Rights Foundation of America, Inc!

This generosity and vision has made possible something amazing.

Consider the context: Almost every property rights organization across the nation that dated from the 1990s property rights awakening, whether a large group with major industry backing or a small heart-and-soul local organization, is gone.

What you are enabling is a truly sustained grassroots effort. The Property Rights Foundation of America exists outside any major industrial funding and accepts no government funds. The officers, board members, writers, and professional experts for the Property Rights Foundation of America are volunteers. And our organization is quietly at the hub of informed civic participation and effective activism that is taking place around the country.

Our web site enables property owners literally anywhere in the United States to inquire and obtain helpful information about almost any issue that is affecting someone's property rights or appears to threaten property rights in that locality.

The tone of their responses to the replies that people receive invariably expresses pleasure that they have finally gotten information that they can use, whether it involves historic preservation designations, conservation easements, or another property rights issue.

Our Annual National Conferences on Property Rights have no parallel in the nation. Each occasion is an all-day meeting for people from every walk of life, bringing before them at least ten of the nation's foremost professional experts and grassroots leaders to speak on issues ranging from eminent domain to wolf reintroduction.
No group whose representatives have spoken at our most recent conferences deserves our help more than the 200 small business owners of Willets Point, faced with New York City's eminent domain machine to wipe out their entire community. We've been privileged to play a supportive role with our "friend of the court" brief and efforts to publicize their battle. We'll continue to stand with them.

So, as this joyful Season arrives and as the New Year approaches, while I again must let you know how urgently your generosity is now needed, please accept my personal expression of appreciation for your commitment to private property rights and to the Property Rights Foundation of America.

Without you and the many other people who extend their heartfelt assistance with this work, these Eighteen Years would have never been possible.

With very best wishes,


Carol W. LaGrasse
