Property Loan Repayment


On April 29, 2016 The Rockcastle Karst Conservancy Acquired Ownership of the Skylight Dome and Hurricane Pit entrances to Pine Hill Cave.

Thanks to everyone who worked hard to make this purchase happen!



RKC had to borrow the funds from four generous cavers, plus a significant portion of our Land Acquisition Fund, in order to purchase the Skylight Preserve. Thanks to your generosity, we have repaid the four donors. However, donations are still needed now to rebuild our Land Acquisition Fund, so we can be positioned for our next cave purchase. Please keep caves available for our use and study by donating below to the RKC Loan Repayment Fund.

You can help by using your credit card or PayPal account to help us pay off our loan in one of two ways:

  • A generous single-payment donation, or
  • A monthly-recurring donation that is easier on your budget (you hardly notice it's there).
When you click the button below, you'll be given the opportunity to select either option.

In making a donation, please consider the sustaining, recurring Donation pledge. For about what a fast-food dinner costs a month ($10), you can make a big dent in our debt over the 5-year loan period. Indeed, this constant income can free up other resources for additional cave purchases!
Recurring donors will receive a reward designed specifically for that level donation once the debt is retired.

Recurring monthly donations should be at least $10, but more is better - $15, $25, $50 !!!
Whichever option you choose, before clicking the final confirmation on PayPal, please add a "Note to the Seller" that your donation is for the RKC Loan Repayment Fund.

To also encourage one-time donations at the following amounts, we have established the following
"Thank You" gifts for donors:
$20 -Skylight Bumper Sticker.
$100 -Buy a 'Piece of the Pit' (Hurricane or Skylight) with a map showing the location.
  Includes a Certificate indicating the "Symbolic Purchase of the Pits".
$200 -Limited Edition Skylight Preserve T-Shirt.
$500 -Handmade Pottery Mug with Skylight Preserve Fundraising Emblem.

Please think about giving! Remember, all donations to RKC are tax deductible!

We hope you are as excited as we are to own and keep open these classic Rockcastle County domes and pits.
