    The Roxbury Land Trust is supported through membership dues, employee matching gifts, occasional state and federal grants, foundation grants and charitable contributions. RLT does not receive town, state or federal support on an annual basis.

    It is staffed by Ann Astarita, executive director, Barbara Bradbury-Pape, development director, and Jamie Curren, land manager; served by a volunteer board of directors and aided by volunteer effort.
