We Did It, we reached our goal! A HUGE thank you to each of our donors!
The Friends' met our $3,500 goal for Giving Tuesday thanks to the donations of 41 individuals like you! And, thanks to challenge grants from other Friends, we gained $10,500 in pledged matches. Our Giving Tuesday total this year will be $14,000!
We truly appreciate your $25 gift and will use these funds in 2020 to boost our outreach and educational efforts, including the work of our Stream Team river monitoring program. This will include: Stream Team equipment, salary for Sarah (our Stream Team coordinator), salary for a new staff person to come on board in 2020, and staff Stream Team traveling expenses. To learn more about what the Stream Team is all about, please read 2019 report. And if this piques your interest, you might want to contact us about becoming a Stream Team volunteer!!
The Giving Tuesday effort has truly been part of the best year ever for the Friends. We look forward to growing our service to the community and caring for the River we all hold dear.
